installation over net - Linux Setup, Configuration & Administration

Hi, as I want to install RedHat 9 on a server (currently running an old Suse) far away, I want to install it over the network. I think, I have to create a ramdisk where I start the installation-script and forward X to my home-pc. But in this case I have only one try. So where can I read more about this Problem? Is there a keyword for this?? Or has anyone another suggestion?? Thanks, Martin...

    Default installation over net

    Hi,

    as I want to install RedHat 9 on a server (currently running an old
    Suse) far away, I want to install it over the network.
    I think, I have to create a ramdisk where I start the
    installation-script and forward X to my home-pc. But in this case I
    have only one try.
    So where can I read more about this Problem? Is there a keyword for
    this??

    Or has anyone another suggestion??

    Thanks,

    Then select ftp as the install medium.

    No - you have to follow the instructions. Presumably on the RH website
    too!

    See [url]http://trilldev.sourceforge.net/files/remotedeb.html[/url] -- "HOWTO Install
    Debian Onto a Remote Linux System". It's about installing Debian over
    Redhat on a remote server, but you may learn from it anyway.

    To quote: "Also, this procedure should be applicable to installing any
    system that allows you to ssh (or maybe telnet - although not recommended)
    into it. It would also have to respect the chroot environment while
    installing. But why would you want a non-Debian server? :)"

    Cam you get the remote site to put in a floppy or CD for you?

    Also, do you have a spare partition on the remote site that you can
    unmount permanently and do a network based installation onto? Talk about
    your hardware: RAMdisk is usually not the way to go....
