I wanted to try something different when playing with CentOS 6 recently, so I did a network install. Other than one very small detail, the install is identical to installing off a normal ISO.
Here’s the difference:
- use the netinstall.iso (eg http://centos.datente.com/media/6/isos/x86_64/CentOS-6.4-x86_64-netinstall.iso)
- when it asks for the URL to grab your image from, use something like http://centos.datente.com/media/6/os/x86_64 (make sure it’s the full path (this example is off my mirror for an x64 install))
- proceed as usual 🙂
