Installing Linux from Hard Disk
Posted on 2003-02-25
I have created an installation diskette with rawrite with boot.img file and I want to use this floppy to install
Linux 8 from a hard disk. I have copied the RedHat folder of disk1 in the hard disk ( hdb1 ) and all the *.rpm of all (3) CDs inside the /RedHat/rpms folder.
When starting the installation, it asks for the hard disk device i.e. /dev/hdb1 and the directory inside it containing the CD image.
My question is, does it require the folder containing the rpm packages or some *.img ?
I have tried passing the path of the rpms i.e. /RedHat/rpms but it doesn't work.
To be clear, my objective is to install Linux in a system without CDROM and network.
