    Question Single Netwok Firewall 7.2 Installation Problem

    It is either i buy a hardware router for $500 or i setup up
    Sinfle Network Firewall 7.2 (SNF) on an old computer for a
    software router.

    SNF is much more flexible and costs me nothing. But i cant
    install it.

    Everytime i boot from the CD or floppy, i get this same error
    over and over.

    Right when the CD boots, you get a screen saying

    Press F1 to choose another installation method.
    Press <Enter> to begin the upgrade or installation.

    I press Enter and then after the screnn detecting my hardware
    i get this error:

    Please Insert The Linux Mandrake CD-ROM.

    But i am installing SNF, why do i need that CD

    Am i supposed to do something differently or is something wrong.
    I have downloaded the manual from Mandrakes Web Site and
    it doesnt mention anything about this and i am following the

    Can some one please help me?

    hmm if this one (SNF) keeps getting you troubles... hmm save yourself some time and download another one. Good Single floppy linux based firewall distro's:

    - freeSCO
    - BBiAgent

    it probably needs a package from the cd that you dont have just give it to it and it will just install the package and continue along its merry way

    I cant even enter the installation part. Right after is searches for hardware then it says
    Loaing Installation Into Memory
    and right then it says,
    Please Insert The Linux Mandrake CD-ROM

    So i cant even start the installation.

    And i would really like to use SNF, it looks great and has so many great features.
