The network install methods are: nfs, ftp, http, nfsiso, httpdisc, and
- nfs, ftp, and http installs work off of a unified tree (All rpms in a
single tree) that is accessible via the given protocol.
- nfsiso works off of an nfs directory containing the isos (and nothing
else!). No other network install method can use raw isos.
- ftpdisc and httpdisc work off of a directory containing the split tree
(one subdirectory per disc). So you might point the installer at
where the discs directory contains
subdirectories disc1, disc2, and disc3 which themselves contain the
contents of the three discs. The idea behind these methods is that you
can loopback mount the three isos on your server, make those mountpoint
accessible via ftp or http, and run a network install off of that.
This was so much easier and complete to understand than what I read in
