Hi,

I want to install RedHat 9 onto a system that has just had the harddrive erased. When I turn on the system, all I see is No Operating System Found.

I've downloaded the following files from this site.
ftp://ftp.redhat.com/pub/redhat/linux/9/en/iso/i386/

File: shrike-SRPMS-disc1.iso 622816 KB 3/14/2003 12:00:00 AM
File: shrike-SRPMS-disc2.iso 660832 KB 3/14/2003 12:00:00 AM
File: shrike-SRPMS-disc3.iso 434720 KB 3/14/2003 12:00:00 AM
File: shrike-i386-disc1.iso 653440 KB 9/3/2003 12:00:00 AM
File: shrike-i386-disc2.iso 661632 KB 3/14/2003 12:00:00 AM
File: shrike-i386-disc3.iso 496672 KB 3/14/2003 12:00:00 AM

But I don't know how to get from "No Operating System Found" to having an up and running system--or even a command line of some sort.

Does anyone know of a "Downloading RedHat Linux and Installing it on a Blank Machine For Dummies" site. Or maybe someone can offer me some help?

What application did you use to burn the CDs?

When you view the CD does it contain files and directories or just on ISO file? If it contains only an ISO file then you did not burn them correctly. If you unpacked the ISO file or did the XP drag and drop thing then the CD will not be bootable.

md5sum will verify the iso files were downloaded correctly. Verify the calculated value with the md5sum file on the site were you downloaded the file.
