Keep digging. The docs are on the CDROM. Check out the Linux Installation
and Getting Started Guide (on the CD-ROM). But, to answer your question,
under dos you use rawrite.exe to create a boot and a root disk. You need
to select a boot kernel image to make the boot disk. This is dependant on
your hardware. Then you need to create the root disk. The boot and root
disk images also require that you select the right one for the size disk
you are writing to (3.5 or 5.25). Then you boot with the boot disk and
and log in as root. Then you partition your hard drive with the linux
fdisk utility. You will need at least a linux partition and probably a
swap partition (a rule of thumb is to have 2x the amount of system ram
for your swap). Then you need to do setup.
Hope this helps.
