Just mount the cd as /mnt/cdrom and run the Install script there.  You
probably want to do a minimal installation.  The program will attempt to
auto-detect your video card and it will want your name and product serial
number as it goes.  I had problem with RH6 doing a full install since it
wants to load is apm daemon and I already had one going. The minimal
installation worked quite well on my Dell Inspiron 7000 laptop.

Hope this help.
