Re: To Internet-install or not to...

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


I always set up my machines with this network installation. I have a 10Mbit internet connection without any limitation. I don't have a DVD writer and I don't want to change the CDs 5 times every installation.
If you have more than one machine to set up you can create your own Fedora mirror and load the files from a local machine.

Cheers, Jan

Network reliability and security are the two top concerns. Speed would
be next. You really should not try this if you are on a slow dial-up
