How can I install Fedora 3 from a dvd in a linux computer with dvd/cd rom to a windows computer with an empty partition that only has a cd rw drive?
I set both up on a local lan with just 2 computers 192.168.2.45 linux, 192.168.2.46 windows computer, both not connected to the internet.. Put dvd contents in Fedora subdirectory of /var/www/html with subdirectories of base and RPMS. Put test files index.html in each subdirectory and could read index.html in /var/www/html, /var/www/html/Fedora, /var/www/html/base, etc. with no problems from Windows computer; e.g., in windows computer put in browser the following, http://192.168.2.45/Fedora/index.html
All the files in the various directories had drwxr-xr-x rights except the rpms which were read only for group and other.
I don't know why I was supposed to boot from the dvd and put the dvd contents in the linux computer. Seems like there should be some way to just do it directly from linux apache server.
When I tried to install from the linux computer, booting from the dvd and selecting an http install it would never recognize the path of Fedora from the linux computer.
