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

4.10. Installing via HTTP

The HTTP dialog applies only if you are installing from an HTTP server (if you selected HTTP in the Installation Method dialog). This dialog prompts you for information about the HTTP server from which you are installing Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

Enter the name or IP address of the HTTP site you are installing from, and the name of the directory containing the RedHat/ installation files for your architecture. For example, if the HTTP site contains the directory /mirrors/redhat/arch/RedHat/, enter /mirrors/redhat/arch/ (where arch is replaced with the architecture type of your system, such as i386, ia64, ppc, or s390). If everything was specified properly, a message box appears indicating that base/hdlist is being retrieved.

Figure 4-6. HTTP Setup Dialog

Next, the Welcome dialog appears.


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 example-1.iso discX
