Exclamation Installing Red Hat 9.0


I am currently Running Red Hat 6.1. I tried downloading and installing Red Hat 9.0 recently. I tried burning on a cdrom and installing directly from the hard drive. I've had trouble with the installation program recognize my cdrom and when I try installing directly from the hard drive, the installation program tells me it can't find the 3rd .iso image, which is in the same directory. Any suggestions on how to solve this problem? Thanks.

Please can you clarify? Does the system boot off the cd? If not check you bios to boot off cd first. If so, verify that your red hat images are okay. From the installation program you should be able to select the option to test the source media. If you can check that out.

Exclamation bootable cdrom

Yeah, I can't get it to boot off the cdrom. I'll try entering the BIOS to boot up. I was using a boot disk. Is it possible to check the iso images on a Windows computer? I downloaded to Windows and burned that way. Thanks.

Not sure about off windows. If you go to linuxiso.org they have a link to how to check your iso. Hope this is of use.

Make sure that your computer is set to boot CD rom BEFORE the hard drive.
