entirety, from a number of FTP sites. To do so requires that you have
an existing Linux installation and a free ext2fs partition to store
the packages. Installation then proceeds as with a CD-ROM based
installation, using the partition instead of a CD-ROM.

The following FTP sites will have Red Hat Commercial Linux available:

We encourage FTP archive maintainers to contact the sites listed to
arrange mirrors!
