NOTE: CentOS Enterprise Linux 5 is built from the Red Hat Enterprise Linux source code. Other than logo and name changes CentOS Enterprise Linux 5 is compatible with the equivalent Red Hat version. This document applies equally to both Red Hat and CentOS Enterprise Linux 5.

12.10. Installing via FTP

The FTP dialog applies only if you are installing from an FTP server (if you selected FTP in the Installation Method dialog). This dialog allows you to identify the FTP server from which you are installing Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

FTP Setup Dialog

Figure 12.7. FTP Setup Dialog

Enter the name or IP address of the FTP site you are installing from, and the name of the directory containing the variant/ directory for your architecture. For example, if the FTP site contains the directory /mirrors/redhat/arch/variant;/, enter /mirrors/redhat/arch/ (where arch is replaced with the architecture type of your system, such as i386, ia64, ppc, or s390x, and variant is the variant that you are installing, such as Client, Server, Workstation, etc.). If everything was specified properly, a message box appears indicating that files are being retrieved from the server.

Next, the Welcome dialog appears.

Tip

You can save disk space by using the ISO images you have already copied to the server. To accomplish this, install Red Hat Enterprise Linux using ISO images without copying them into a single tree by loopback mounting them. For each ISO image:

mkdir discX  
mount -o loop RHEL5-discX.iso discX
