Installing linux locally, but using telnet/ssh - 01/10/05 06:22 AM

I managed to find a machine that I can play around with, and I want to install CentOS on it. The only problem is I don't have a monitor for it. I can put the CD in the system, but from there I don't have any way to start the install. Is there any way I can ssh/telnet to the machine and run the install?

go grab a monitor, move it over to this pc for an hour while you do the install, turn on the sshd, and then put it back where you found it.

I can't carry the monitor, I'm not strong enough

I actually don't have one.

silly, you should know how to install with just a keyboard, know all of the commands you need and the prompts, then after you install you can sort out the mess you've made with ssh! :-)

you should know how to install it, just by concentrating really hard while staring at the machine!
