From the README,
"For CDROM and hard drive installs, use the boot.img file (most Red hat boxed
sets include this floppy already; just boot it!). NFS, ftp, and http
installations requires the bootnet.img floppy, which is available in the
images directory. In additino, installs which require a PCMCIA adapter (such
as for PCMCIA CDROM or networking cards) need the pcmcia.img floppy."
As usual, the images are in redhat-6.0/i386/images. (HTTP install? ooer,
better get ready...)
By the way, I have AT LAST enabled the rh6 mirror on ftp.heanet.ie. Took
ages just to confirm I had all the files 'cause RH's mirror host was near
unreachable. If you have problems, try using 126.96.36.199 instead of
