Ehhh! Ix nay! Hold on! No way man. I dont know any other way than to
install from floppy. I have a single user machine, the only networking
Now, until someone whips up and installer like the one that comes with
redhat, and installs it off the cdrom directly (w/o *any* floppy), then
Ill be up a creek w/o the floppy intallation.
Also, I generally only reinstall from scratch when my harddrive crashes.
And I usually install Linux first, so I dont even have the comfortable
base of dos to pull stuff off the cdrom and stuff. Even in dos, its a
major pain to get the cdrom working.
Show me a computer that can boot off a cdrom... and gimme a cdrom that
will boot up debian... And Ill buy it like a shot.
Or if anyone interested, make up a special ROM with kernel etc in it, so
the machine will boot from ROM... Has anyone done this?
