The second CD is a snapshot of the FTP archives.  This
archive contains numerous sources and binaries not included in RPP format
on this CD.  Read the accompanying documentation for each package before
installing it to make sure you don't overwrite anything.


The disk images are in the images directory.  The root disk image is
rootdisk.img, and the various boot disk images are under directories
according to kernel version.  In each kernel version directory is a
image.idx file which describes each boot disk kernel configuration.
The fields are: image number; SCSI; Ethernet; CD-ROM.

If you're creating the floppies from a Unix box that has both dd and perl
available, running "perl" in the images directory should
help get you started.

The images/rescue.img is a "emergency root disk" image.  You can use
it in conjunction with your boot disk to recover from system damage.


If you have access to an existing Linux machine, you can build your
own boot disks for Red Hat Commercial Linux using any kernel you wish.
Read the README in the bootfs directory for instructions.
