View Full Version : [ubuntu] Ubuntu 8.10 Netboot Installation

January 31st, 2009, 06:23 AM
I am trying to install Ubuntu 8.10 through the netboot installer files found in archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu.

I am trying to install the base files, and I keep getting errors that they cannot be downloaded. I have good internet and cannot figure out why.

What is goin on?

I would suggest using the mini.iso (http:///help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/MinimalCD) to install just enough to get networking going. You can select what type of install you want to do from the menu screen, cli, desktop or server.

Just for clarification, I am using the netboot files because using the cd doesn't work. I know it isn't a bad burn because I can install from other computers, just not this one.

I can always try. I hate wasting a cd for something like that.
