Linux can be installed with a minimal installer which pulls files across the network, or can be booted from the network directly. Learn about these options for installing Linux.
- [Instructor] We can install Linux over a network…in a couple of different ways.…The installer can be slimmed down,…and put on very small media,…just a very basic bootable environment,…which then goes and gets installation files…from a server on the network or on the Internet.…Or, we can set up a server that hosts the installation files…and provides a network-bootable environment,…using a technology called PXE,…or Preboot Execution Environment,…without having to have any local installation media at all.…A network installer image is available…for most common distros,…and they usually come with a list of mirrors…where installation images are hosted baked right in.…
The install image is pretty small…compared to the standard live-CD installer,…and it starts up in a lower graphics mode,…and even offers a command-line installation mode,…which is great for installing on older hardware…that may not be suitable for desktop environments.…Of course, to install from an Internet mirror,…you need a fairly sizable Internet connection.…
