right. rarp. not bootp. in 4.2 you used bootp+rarp, in 6.0 just rarp.
it took about 5 minutes to set up including reading the docs.
it's the rhl-install-guide-en package, but the relevant parts can
be found here:
i used the ramdisk install method since it didn't required mucking with
nfs. you still need to set up rarp though my quick skim of the page
(and the rarp setup link) seems to imply it's just needed for nfs
liam, i'm not sure which version you installed with, but these
instructions seemed pretty clear to me - even offering a perl one
liner to spew the right filename for tftp.
