fc6 install from hard disk??

Good day all,

I'd like to upgrade my fc5 to fc6 but i dont have a dvd drive, so what i would like to do is unpack the dvd iso onto a hard disk partition, and then add to my grub.conf the relevant information to boot the installer from my hard disk.

I believe its possible to do it this way, but the fedora.redat.com site is down at the moment so i cant read the howto

I can unpack the dvd myself, but all I need help with is what I add to the grub.conf

here is what i think i should put:....

title Fedora Core 6 installer
root (hd0,??)
kernel /isolinux/vmlinuz
initrd /isolinux/initrd.img

Is this right??

Do I use the /isolinux folder for the vmlinuz and initrd.img ????

thanks in advance

Interesting approach, i haven't tried it but it seems like it might work. What I do, on other distros, is copy the dvd or cd to a partition , but I boot fron a 'net-install' or minimal install ,cd that has a install from file option. You just mount the partition where the dvd, either copied or loop mounted, is and point the installer to it. I am dl FC-6 now to try it out.

I've seen a few over the last year or so, but the one I posted is the first one that came to me and I believe it was "aimed" at installing from windows. There was also a link in there from bob (which I didn't happen to follow) so I posted it.
These other 2 suggestions look more promising.
