    Trying to HTTP install Fedora. what do i enter for directory?

    I am trying to hTTP install fedora instead of CD, because teh CD's will not work.

    It asks for two things:
    Website name, with a side note saying IP address or host name.
    Fedora Core Directory

    I am using http://mirror.linux.duke.edu/pub/fed...ore/5/i386/os/

    So what should I enter? nothing is working for me

    don't you usually use localhost or 127.0.0.1 for the default host name and then /var/www/root?
    When you say "nothing is working" what have you tried and what has it said? or how have you verified that "its not working"
    Life is about hanging onto what you think is important and finding out what really is important.

    Heh, if I had to download some Linux files, I think I would put them in the "Recycle Bin" directory! Ok, that wasn't very funny.

    http://mirror.linux.duke.edu/pub/fed...ore/5/i386/os/

    That is the correct site, if thats not working might want to check and see if your NIC is being detected.

    I have not done an HTTP install for a while but if it asks for the site use this:
    http://mirror.linux.duke.edu

    the path would be this:
    /pub/fedora/linux/core/5/i386/os/

    I had a problem installing fedora 5 from the CD's today too, so I copied the CD's to an FTP site and installed via FTP from there, worked fine.
