Installation Method

Notes
There are 5 different methods of installing.
One of the most common (CDROM) doesn't show this screen.
Network installs are most common among larger institutions which have good networking, and servers to install from.
Hard Drive installs. These tend to be quite fast, but you can only do them on machines where you will not be repartitioning your hard drive. These also involve the most setup.
Select your method and hit [OK]
