"This NHF assumes you have an internet connection available to work with Linux as the installation is started with a boot up of Linux. The sites referenced herein are valid as of the date of this NHF printed above."

"1. To begin the installation, you need to download some preliminary files. You also need to make a boot floppy, so have a blank floppy disk handy. Get "bootnet.img" from the images subdirectory at the ftp site, e.g., (ftp://ftp.linuxberg.com/pub/distributions/RedHat/i386/images/). It is recommended that the Red Hat site not be used as the connection is overburdened and slow."
