installation from CD-R

Hi,

I have downloaded the RedHat 6.0 from a FTP site and burn it on a
CD-R. The root of this CD is:
-r--r--r--   1 400      400        18391 Mar 19 11:50 COPYING
-r--r--r--   1 400      400         3187 Apr 19 14:56 README
-r--r--r--   1 400      400         2751 Sep 18  1997 RPM-PGP-KEY
drwxr-xr-x   5 400      400         8192 Apr 30 16:58 RedHat
-r--r--r--   1 400      400         2048 Apr 20 09:33 boot.cat
drwxr-xr-x   7 400      400         8192 Apr 30 16:06 doc
drwxr-xr-x   6 400      400         8192 Jun  1 04:12 dosutils
drwxr-xr-x   2 400      400         8192 Apr 30 15:56 images
drwxr-xr-x   4 400      400         8192 Apr 30 15:19 misc

I created the boot disk (Rawrite...) and I booted from this floppy.
But when I choose to install Linux from the local CDROM the
installation program stops and I must reboot the system.
I copied the entire CD on a FAT partition and choose to install from
Hard Drive and it was OK (I could'nt finish all the installation
because my linux partition was too small...). Anyway, how can I
install Linux from a CD-R?

Thanks

Olivier Friard

See my web page on the subject:

Chances are you're missing some critical files that appear as links on
most ftp sites.

        God... I have GOT to get some sleep!  I was starting on a
critcizing reply about software piracy... and in the middle of
the first paragraph I suddenly remembered which newsgroup I was
in.  Oops....    <smile>

1. Red Hat CD-R/FAT-32 installation page updated

Hi,

I've just updated my Red Hat 5.0/5.1 CD-R and FAT-32 installation web
page.  This page describes how to burn your own Red Hat CD, with a focus
on doing this from Windows (though much of the information is useful to
those doing it from other OSes, too).  It also describes how to get the
Red Hat installation routines to do an install from a FAT-32 partition.
This much is nothing new.  The new stuff is mainly clarifications and
expansions of some of the material that had been there before, including
tips on creating bootable CDs, preserving permissions in Windows, etc.
So if you want to create your own Red Hat CD or install it from a FAT-32
partition, check it out:
