After you have downloaded your RHEL 5 ISO file from an approved community, verify the file, and create a cd. If using something like roxio cd creator, they have a handy function called BURN DISC IMAGE. That is where you would insert the ISO file that you downloaded and it will create an automatic startup cd for you. Just make sure when you are booting the pc up you have it set in your CMOS MENU to check that cd before booting from hard drive

Steps to install linux through server?

Let me show some basic steps which will help you to install RHEL through server or Network

Before we start, i would like to point out some informations
  • Steps shown here are explained with RHEL 5. But the procedure is same for all versions of RHEL which supports Network installation

  • For the Convenience to take snapshots, i'm installing RHEL on a VMware (Virtual Machine). So to me, some hardware resources are limited like physical memory, hard disk space, Graphics adapter ..etc

  • My Server which contains RHEL images is " LinuxServer " and its address is

  • Location of RHEL5 Installation Image on this server is: /home/nightflare/Test/RH5/i386
    Shared folder is: RH5/i386
    So if we want to access this folder through network, then the address would be :

  • Due to limited hardware resources of my machine, i would proceed with TEXT MODE installation which is no different than the Graphical Mode.
So lets start.

I have a bootable CD of RHEL which i will need to start with. You can use any live CD or DVD of RH ( which support network installation ) to start the system. I inserted the Disc and set system to boot with it.

If you successfully able to boot from the live CD / DVD, you probably will get a screen like this

Type next to the boot: linux askmethod text and press

The option "askmethod" will set the installer (anaconda installer is default installer for RedHat) to ask us for which installing method should be used. RedHat Linux supports many installing methods like
  • CD or DVD (Local CD / DVD are supported. If you want to use Remote CD/DVD, you will have to mount it in a shared folder and proceed with network installation method)

  • Hard Drive (installation files stored)

  • NFS Image (images stored in Network Filesystem Partition over a network)

  • FTP (Installation files stored on FTP Server)

  • HTTP (Installation Files stored on HTTP Server)
The option '" text " will tell installer to use TEXT MODE installation. If you prefer Graphical Mode installation, you can skip this option.

After pressing Enter Key, the anaconda installer will load necessary files and drivers to memory and start the second level of installer. You will see,


After essential drivers and files are loaded, installer will ask for installation language, keyboard etc.

I select English as my installer's Language

On this screen, Choose the layout of your keyboard. In Most cases, The Keyboard Layout is USA, so is mine. But if your layout is different, choose appropriate Keyboard Layout.
I Choose US

Since we start the installer with askmethod , installer will ask for the method of installation.

I chose HTTP, since my RedHat Server is HTTP server.

When we chose Network Based Installation, Installer will prompt for configuring the network.

On this screen, Select what all IP technologies we want to be supported by the installer.

After selecting the IP configurations on previous screen, the installer will look up and resolve IP addresses.

After resolving IP Addresses, Installer will ask you for location of installation files on the network
Since we selected Installation over HTTP , we need to specify the server (Host name of server) which contains the binaries or installation files. And we needed to specify the location of the installation files in the server. Remember this location is relative to server and web accessible directory
ex.: in my case Server Hose name is LinuxServer and IP of server is
Installation image is located under /home/nightflare/Test/RH5/i386
But the location should specify on this screen is /RH5/i386 NOT /home/nightflare/Test/RH5/i386 or


After entering the details necessary to find the installation images, it will try to get those files.
If everything went fine, then it will try to pull the files from server.

If you see this screen, you can relax. System successfully found the installation files on server and retrieves it.


Rest of Installation is just same as Installation by Local CD/DVD

Just Skip this window. RHEL also comes in CDs which spans over many CDs each with a installation no. like DISC 1, DISC 2 ... etc. This is not our case, so we can skip it safely.

This screen ask to confirm our option to Skip. Choose Skip

Searches our system for any previous installations of RedHat

If Any previous installations were found, installer will ask for whether to Upgrade the previous installation or we need to Reinstall. I choose to reinstall

On next screen, we are requested to specify the partitioning. We can either accept the Proposed Partitioning or proceed with Custom Partitioning.
I Choose Custom Partitioning as it will provide more control over how the spaces are alloted ..etc.

Since I go with Custom Partitioning, I can edit, create and even modify partitions according to my needs.
Remember, I'm working on a VMware. In real cases you may dealing with larger disks or able to set up LVM or RAIDs

Select Whether Need a Boot Loader or not

On This screen, we can choose have extra boot options or not. Booting options are like typing single will cause kernel to log in to single user mode rather than multiuser mode

Turned on the computer, the mouse/cursor froze; removed battery pak; didn't work; tried FN F9, didn't work; what now?

I'm assuming that you have tried all the F8 boot options and none worked.
If the keys don't work then the hard disk is completely corrupted - if you're unlucky its because the hard disk itself failed. You probably will need to boot in the BIOS (F12 during start) and set it to boot from USB. Then find a USB cd-rom and use it to boot from a Linux Live - CD: use it to find out if the hdd is still functional. If it isn't then you will have to replace it , then reinstall Win 7 using a disk that you can borrow from a friend and your key.

You do not need driver for the monitors otherwise I will be real busy downloading the drivers for 2-300 monitors I repair every year, you do need driver for the video card in your PC. The LCD monitor needs to be fed with 60Hz refesh rate set by your PC and the native resolution it needs.

RHEL 5.3 fails to boot at "bringing up interface"

I found the solution.
Take in accunt that I'm a total newbie on Linux boxes.

1 - Previous to any change, following RH deployment guide, I backed up the network config on a file called "network-config-" with:
"system-config-network-cmd -e > /root/network-config-"

2 - After the Server refuses to complete boot sequence, I rebooted the server and entered on interactive mode pressing "I" just after RHEL splash.

3 - Then I accept all options with "Y" but "Bring up interface bond0".
Then hit "C" to complete boot sequence.

4 - Login normally as root and revert the changes with:
"system-config-network-cmd -i -c -f /root/network-config-"

5 - Reboot the server and all return to normal.
