15.3. Installation CD-ROMs

Place the first Red Hat Linux CD-ROM in your CD-ROM drive. Select Yes when asked if you want to run the autorun program from the CD. It then prompts you for the root password so that you can install packages.

If you enter the correct root password, the Package Management Tool interface appears and allows you to select packages groups to install as well as individual packages within the groups.

Figure 15-3. Installing Software with the Package Management Tool

The Package Management Tool marks what packages are already installed on your system with a checkmark. You can add packages by clicking the checkbox next to each package. To uninstall a package, remove the checkmark (see Figure 15-4).

Figure 15-4. Individual Package Selection

After selecting packages, click the Update button to install or uninstall the selected packages.
