Downloading RPMs using Windows for RedHat Linux Enterprise WS
I have a P4 2.8 processor with 512 RAM and 80 GB memory.I have dual booted my computer with RedHat Linux Enterprise
WS and Windows XP. My modem doesn't support Linux. So I have to log on using XP. I want to download rpm packages for my
RedHat Linux OS. I need to know if I can download things on to my hard-disk using XP and then write it to a Cd-RW, then boot
with Redhat and open disk, copy content and then install it. Also please suggest good sites for getting RedHat RPMs. Also
tell me how to install the downloaded RPMs on Linux.

In answer to 1st question, yes you can. Just tell Windows to save it as type "All Files".
