hello there,
             i want to install redhat 7.2 on a old 486sx pc which obviously has not got the ability to boot from a cd. however, when i use a boot disk and go to 'dosutils' directory to run the autoboot.bat, it sends me to the graphic installation which the pc cannot run due to small amount of memory. so, what i need to do is go the text installation (which is accessible from the boot menu if the pc could boot from a cd) without booting from the cd. any help?

thanks!
