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.

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?

The install OS CDs are the i386 files. You want to boot 1st install CD which is created from this shrike-i386-disc1.iso file.

The SRPMS are the source code files.
