generation.. sorry too tired to spell your name right ;) ... I have redhat 8.0 mirrored on my ftp server.. I warn you it can be slow 25-30k but that sounds better then you're getting.. also during the day the irc on that machine is pretty busy so I sometimes "drop" users for a period of time then re-enable their access... if you want to give it a try go to www.techiekb.com/~drew/mirrors/

Well, for everyone still reading this, I recommend getting:

Gozilla first to manage the downloads
Then go to linuxiso.org and RedHat and start pulling them down and letting Gozilla pull a few at a time.

GenX, I believe the linuxiso.org has a howto on what to do with the .iso's. Dig for it.

I agree with Pseudocyber on this the instructions for setting up the iso's on the disks can be found there, or if not .. Google is your friend.;)

Also at this point you may want to take a moment before you load an entirely new OS into your system to learn a little about Linux.. If you read up on it a bit and have a basic understanding of its features, limitations and general setup you will be in a much better position to tackle the standard problems that come up during installation and configuration.

Iv always used the Linux installation as a benchmark for user ready-ability(is that a word?) to use Linux, .. IMHO if you cannot install it and set up the basics by yourself, you have no business using it anyway. But thats just my opinion on the matter. :bandit:
