Verify shasums 3. loopback mount iso(s) 4. copy all the content of the DVD/CDs to a directory on a file server (unfortunately, newer versions of NFS servers will not export any of the content of loopback mounted directories successfully, I used to do that and it worked well, but I have not taken the time to figure out how to get the NFS server to do it. Another option is to use unionfs, which can be successfully exported, though I haven't tested it). 5. Export via NFS (and/or FTP/HTTP. 6. Burn a CD using the boot.iso image in the images/ directory on the first CD or on the DVD. 7. Boot your system(s) using the boot.iso CD and do a network install. I have found this to be much better way to install systems. I have done upgrade installs this way for my AMD64 box. You only use 1 CD (and it could be a little 50MB biz-card disc, if you want) and the network installation is MUCH faster than swapping discs or using the DVD. Of course, I also burn a DVD-/+RW disc to carry the newest version of Fedora with me. I would like to find a 2-sided DVD-/+RW disc to burn x86 on one side and AMD64 on the other. -- Lamont R.
