Hi:

I have downloaded the 3 ISO files from redhat ftp site, and burned them onto three separate CDs. I was trying to install Redhat on my Pentium 1 PC, but when I boot up the PC with the bootdisk.img, the installation program complained that the Redhat CD cannot be found. Then I booted up the same PC with Slackware Linux, the CD drive works fine. I also downloaded Redhat for the second time, checked md5checksum. However, the system still cannot find the Redhat CD when booting up.

Could anyone tell me what I am supposed to do next? Should I decode the ISO files into source tree first?. But that won't work either, I have tried a couple of times.

Help is really needed


Thanks

You should burn the CDs using a program like Nero or EasyCD Creator ... the option to use is called Burn Image and it is under the File menu option...

Here is an FAQ about burning Linux ISO files...

And another one about Liunx iso files in general.

Thanks hughesjr.

Your direction helped a lot. For other people who are having the same problem with Redhat ISO files, please check out www.linuxiso.org as they have a lot of helpful suggestions in relation to the installation issues of linux distribution. I have successfully installed my redhat linux using the method provided by one of linux gurus in the forum of that website.
