I am tyring to install CentOS-5.3, don't ask why I just need. (I picked CentOS-5.3-i386-netinstall.iso), on VMware, but after a few steps, I get this:

enter image description here

What is this? I don't think I need this how to skip over it?


You selected the net install option so will need to specify the HTTP option and configure your TCP/IP connection.

The name of the server should be something like this:

Website: /centos/5.3/os/i386     
CentOS directory: /centos/5/os/i386

    The mirror site mirror.centos.org does not point to any end of life packages. The original poster will be required to use the CentOS vault: http://vault.centos.org/5.3/os/i386/ – GracefulRestart Sep 21 '18 at 21:08
