I have downloaded the RedHat Linux 4.1 onto a PC running NT 4
workstation. From there I want to install Linux onto a second PC.
This second PC has two hard drives the c: is a dos drive and the
second drive d: I have now made into a Linux drive.
I have made two image disks using boot.img and supp.img and have
attempted to install. However of the choices of installation offered:
CD_ROM, nfs, ftp or hard-drive only the latter is feasible (I have no
CD player and no IP number for this second PC), however although I
have copied the Base and RPMS (?) directories onto the DOS c: drive
into the root directory, when the intallation asks where those
directories are located and I answer hda1 with path / neither
directory is located by the installation routine. I have tried
changing the path from / to \, and even c:\ but to no avail.
Can anyone shed any light please? I don't know how to copy the files
to the linux drive, so how do I get the installation routine to
recognise a DOS drive?
Thanks for any help you can offer, Rob
