"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."
