    This might not be the place to post this but maybe someone has an idea.

    I have a running server that I'd like to format remotly. It's currently running an old version of Fedora and I'd like to put centos.

    The datacenter where it's hosted can provide a network KVM but the server doesn't have a cd-rom drive.

    So my question is does anyone know of a way to install a bootloader of somesort that's going to be able to fetch a linux installer off the net and install centos? The only critical thing is to start the installer without a cd because with the KVM I can do anything as if I was sitting in front of the server.

    Thanks a bunch,

    I would ask the datacenter how they would do it. I assume they have a networked image somewhere that they use.

    Beyond that CentOs has a KVM wiki here
