Headless Install

I have been using Arch for a while on my desktop, and I am deciding to install it on my old Compaq server I came into. I have to monitor/keymoard/mouse for it (although I could use my main set...) I was wondering if you guys have any tips for a headless install, like over ssh or something.

Thanks

Re: Headless Install

If you have an existing linux install on the server, you could install Arch from within that. There's a wiki page about it.

Re: Headless Install

You can build a larch CD to do this. There are instructions in the docs.
