10.2. Setting Up the Distribution

To set up a distribution from a full Fedora DVD or ISO image, use this procedure.

Network Locations

To create a local mirror from an existing network source, skip this section and refer instead to Section 10.3, “Mirroring a Network Location”.
  1. If you are using a DVD disc or ISO image, Create a directory mount point:
    mkdir /mnt/dvd
    
    To mount a physical DVD disc, use the following command:
    mount -o context=system_u:object_r:httpd_sys_content_t:s0 /dev/dvd /mnt/dvd
    
    To mount a DVD ISO image, use the following command:
    mount -ro loop,context=system_u:object_r:httpd_sys_content_t:s0 /path/to/image.iso /mnt/dvd
    
  2. To support NFS installation, create a file /etc/exports and add the following line to it:
    /mnt/dvd *(ro,async)
    
    Start the NFS server using the following commands:
    /sbin/service rpcbind start /sbin/service nfs start
    
  3. To support HTTP installation, use yum to install the Apache web server if it is not already installed:
    yum -y install httpd
    
    Make a link to the mounted disc in the Apache public content area:
    ln -s /mnt/dvd /var/www/html/distro
