I bought a Compaq Deskpro 6550+ pre loaded with NT 4 workstation I
didn't know it has no CD-ROM drive until I powered up for the first
time. Primary partition has NT (as FAT) and 3 GB partition unused.
This Compaq Deskpro has FastEthernet adapter built-in. I also have IBM
Thinkpad with CD-ROM, 3Com PCMCIA cardbus FastEthernet adapter. I have
LinkSys 5-port 10/100 autoswitch and I installed software into the NT
like M$ Office2K, Netscape Communicator 4.77 using laptop's laptop's
CD-ROM. My laptop's HD is already bloated, can't take anymore Linux
Here's my question. Is it possible to install Linux (Red Hat 7.x) using
my laptop's CD-ROM with only network protocols as NetBEUI and TCP/IP
just like I did in Windoze? If so, how? If not, what's the best way to
install Linux to a CDROM-less PC?
