I am assuming that you are asking about Red Hat 9.Over the network there are 3 methods which i know of which can be used for installation.
1) NFS Image
2) FTP server
3) HTTP server
You will need a network driver diskette in all 3 cases.
If you are performing a network installation, the Configure TCP/IP dialog appears. You can choose to configure the IP address and Netmask of the device via DHCP or manually.
NFS installations can use ISO (or CD-ROM) images rather than copying an entire installation tree. After placing the required ISO images (the binary Red Hat Linux CD-ROMs) in a directory, choose to install via NFS. You will then point the installation program at that directory to perform the installation.
Verifying that the ISO images are intact before you attempt an installation will help to avoid problems that are often encountered during an NFS installation. To verify the ISO images are intact prior to performing an installation, use an md5sum program. ISO images have an md5sum embedded in them. To test the checksum integrity of an ISO image, at the installation boot prompt, type:
So create any of the above 3 servers on the machine which contain the ISO images and make sure that the directory where they are stored is included in the program.
