How to start Anaconda installer for Fedora from the command line

I have been trying to get fedora to run on my computer for the better part of a week.  It doesn't recognice my display adapter (ATI Mobility Radeon X1800), and I wanted to install it from the live CD from the command line, and work out how to get the GUI working later.

When I simply type the command "anaconda", it says "no install method specified".  What is the command that would be issued if I had clicked the "install to disk" option on the desktop of the live OS with a GUI?

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

For the anaconda command you can have a look at all the valid arguments it can take:

http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/AnacondaOptions

You maybe interested in the following arguments:

graphical
lowres

so you would issue the command as follows or similar:

anaconda graphical

or

anaconda lowres

I ended up getting the GUI to work on another computer, and looked where the "install to Hard Drive" option was pointed to.

The command was "/usr/bin/liveinst"
