i386 cdrom layout

i386 cdrom layout

Post by Ryn » Tue, 12 Jun 2001 06:40:58



Hello folks,

In looking through the handbook and the ftp.openbsd.org repository, two
questions came up. How do I need to layout my cdrom after I get the
i386 and sparc directories? In looking at an older CD I see [1]. Do I need
to download everything under i386 and burn it to a cd under 2.9? I
assume the boot floppy knows to look somewhere to grab the docs.

If there are any good links/docs on creating cd's and the boot process
I would love to see them.

Thanks

Ryn

1. Downloading RH7...So many types: 7.0-i386...7.0-i386-respin...7.0-ja-i386

Hya,

I was going to download RedHat 7.0.  But since it's a long download.  I
want to make sure I download what is the best.  I see that there are
three types of ISO's:

  7.0-i386-docs-8bit.iso
  7.0-i386-powertools.iso
  7.0-i386-respin-SRPMS.iso
  7.0-i386-respin-disc1.iso
  7.0-i386-respin-disc2.iso
  7.0-i386-upgrade.iso
  7.0-ja-i386-SRPMS.iso
  7.0-ja-i386-disc1.iso
  7.0-ja-i386-disc2.iso

Which one do you guys recommend?  I want the most updated one.  Would
that be the "ja's" or the "respin's."

Thanks...
