Not with Fedora....
Tried a few times to do a net install of FC-1 over ftp and http through
a proxy and from a local repository... all failed...
Pretty sure I tried an install over NFS too...
However, the vast majority of the installs I've done (rh/debian/FreeBSD)
have been via http/ftp, generally from our own local mirror...
Never really had many issues...
Mr. Rogers could explain shoe-tying and make it seem like the coolest
thing in the world. He was our Uncle and older brother. He told us we
were special, and we knew he'd be there for us.
A cult leader, right down to the sneakers.
