"Just as the choice for various architectures exists, Linux
also provides you the choice over the method of installation.
If your machine lacks a CDROM drive, you could always install Linux
from another machine on your network that does have one."
"It was most likely that you installed your first Linux box from
a bootable CDROM. Maybe since your motherboard didn't support
booting from the CDROM and you had to make a bootable floppy
instead. Now, that wasn't all you knew about the methods of
installing Linux locally. You even knew that Linux could be
installed over a network but could never get yourself to do it.
In this article I will take you through one method of remote
installation -- over NFS."
"This article will not take you through the installation of
Linux but only the method of remote installing Linux, thus problems
regarding Installing are out of the scope of this article."
