LINUX INSTALLATION & VIRTUALIZATION PROJECT2LINUX Red Hat InstallationThis portion of this document will cover the installation of Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server(RHEL) installation. This is the Linux distribution that I work with on a day to day bases andwhat I am most familiar with. There are many others to choose from but this is what is trusted bymy company and many others across the globe. I will be installing RHEL in a Testingenvironment in an enterprise integration testing lab, some resources I use may not be available toeveryone.Red HatTo install RHEL I will be using a DVD. You can download the IOS file from a redhat source andburn it on a DVD or save it to a USB drive.I will be installing on a HP client Z440At Startup Menu press Esc . Select Boot Menu. Then which drive you want the DVD to bootfrom . At this point for me it will be Legacy –HP PLDS DVDRWThis install will be RHEL 6.4 there are newer versions but the upgraded elements are not anecessity for my company or its clients to upgrade to the newest version at this time.

At the nextscreen you will select skip to bypass the media test.For the next 2 prompts select Language and Keyboard Language (Enuglish,U.S. English)Select where you want the installation to be stored. For me this will be Basic Storage Devices.
LINUX INSTALLATION & VIRTUALIZATION PROJECT4For caution prompt select yes, discard any data. Because I work in a test environment this is adefinite choice for me. Be sure this is the option that you want to choose.Next select your host name for example, host, user, domain, server, or client. I have seen this asthe “localhost” example below or “genuser” for general user. You can also select the ConfigureNetwork button at the bottom of the hostname configuration and find more advanced networkconnection options for specific types of connections. Once you select Next you will select yourtime zone. Select your options and select Next.
