Check the release announcement to find out on what media the installers are available.
Major releases are distributed on a USB device. To mount a USB device:
- Attach the device. Log in to the terminal as root.
- Use the dmesg command to output something like sdf: sdf1 to list a recent device connected. Or list the devices attached to your system with the command: fdisk -l | grep "/dev/sd". The device assigned to the USB device should look similar to /dev/sds or /dev/sde
- On a fresh Red Hat installation, automount is enabled , but execution from the device is disabled. So you must unmount the USB drive with eject /<mountpoint> or eject /dev/<device id>.
- Create a mount point directory for the disk with mkdir /mnt/usbdisk.
- Mount the device mount -o shortname=winnt /dev/<device>1 /mnt/usbdisk. Or from the GUI browse to /dev, right-click the USB device, and choose Mount.
Software is sometimes distributed as tar files. To extract from a tar file:
- In a terminal, as root, use the md5sum command to verifty the checksum matches the md5sum listed in the checksum file.
- Extract the from the tar archive with tar -zxvf filename.tar.gz.
