I have two computers connected via LAN. One have NT Server with CD-ROM
installed, the other is a computer without a CD-ROM where I wish to install
The most straight forward way I can think of is starting the ftp service of
NT Server and map a virtual directory to the CD-ROM drive. Then I load the
boot floppy(came from the RedHat box) into the other computer and ask it to
install from FTP server.
The problem is the NT trancates all the filenames in the installation CD,
for example "XFree86-S3-126.96.36.199-25.i386.rpm" will become "Xfree86-.000". The
installation program just cannot find the required packages.
Does anyone encounter the same problem and what can I do?
