Red Hat Linux 9

You can install the Red Hat Linux documentation on your local system from this CD-ROM so that you can view the HTML version from your hard drive. After inserting the Documentation CD, you will be prompted to enter the root password. After successful authentication, the Package Management Tool interface will allow you to select which packages to install from the CD-ROM.

Alternatively, as root, open a shell prompt such as an XTerm or GNOME Terminal and change to the directory on the CD-ROM that contains the RPM packages:

cd /mnt/cdrom/RedHat/RPMS/

Then, use the rpm command to install them:

rpm -Uvh *.rpm

For ease of viewing, documents installed from this CD-ROM will be added as an entry under Documentation on the main menu.
