RedHat 7.3 - Install from FTP

First, I don't have a CD-Recorder so I can't use the ISO files!

Seccond.. I wanna install from FTP but it need a driver for my network card..

I'm using the nForce chipset (and Windows right now)..

Is there somebody who can tell where I can get the network driver and how to put it onto a floppy?

I don't think you will have much luck. The nforce network driver needs to get compiled and you can only compile it for a specific kernel version. Simply adding the driver to a bootfloppy will be impossible if you don't have a rh 7.3 system at hand to use.

But their might be another good solution. I thought RH 7.3 supports install from a harddrive too. Not sure exactly how that will work. I guess you would have the tree RH 7.3 iso's and put them somewhere on your harddrive. Then the setup can use them.
