16.9. Installing in an LPAR (Common Steps)

Once the installation program has started (if the red field behind the LPAR icon is disappearing, the installation program has begun), select the LPAR and double-click on Operating System Messages.

The initial installation start-up script asks you questions about your networking and DASD configurations. Red Hat Enterprise Linux has changed the limit for parameter file definitions and now accepts thirty-two (32) parameters. Any information not specified in the parameter file must be specified by answering the installation program questions.

Once all questions have been answered, you are ready to begin the core installation program, loader. To continue with the installation, refer to Chapter 17, Installing on IBM System z Systems for further instructions.


If you install over a network with a Hard Drive Installation source you must perform a text mode installation.
