HP driver disc

Recent versions of Red Hat Linux typically require only driver updates with minor fixes to support HP
workstations. These releases can usually be supported with the appropriate driver disc from the HP website,
which can be used as a post-installation utility for the standard Red Hat Linux install. For more information,
HP Linux driver discs on page
After you complete the standard Red Hat install and restart the system, a Red Hat first-boot utility runs. After
you specify a number of settings (such as the security level, time and date, 'root' password, and user
accounts), the utility lets you load an additional disc.
The driver disc is used during this phase. All content added by HP is in the /HP directory on the disc. You can
use it to build your own image or to browse the HP content.
Please see /HP directory on the disc for any last-minute README pointers for elements on the disc.
