Redhat installation error disc 2


I downloaded and burned the Redhat 7.3 iso's. I ran the install, and when it gets to "insert disc 2", it doesn't recognize disc 2. I tried re-downloading the iso and re-burning it numerous times, that didn't do it.
My boss at work also wanted to install it, and he downloaded it seperately and burnt it to cd himself and got the exact same problem with different machines.

Is anyone else getting this error? How do I fix it? To me it seems like the ISO for disc 2 is totally flawed, but I haven't seen too much complaining about it, so I don't know what is up.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Try to download from another mirror site and check the md5sum to make sure no error upon downloading

I ran into this problem on disk #2 as well. I downloaded it again from a different mirror site and it worked fine.

Well, I've tried a bunch more times, checked the MD5 checksums (and they said they were good), and disc 2 still didn't work. Maybe it it something with my cd-rom drive I don't know. Now I'm trying Redhat 7.2 and Slackware and see if those will work. Thanks for the suggestions.

same here

I have the exact same problems, burned with 2 different burners, two different burning applications, tried 3 different readers on my linux box, and did the linux mediacheck which was successful!

I'm trying another mirror now as someone suggested, seems odd that the mediacheck was fine, and still having issues.

No problems here-- I d/l the 7.3 isos to OSX, burned 'em, and they worked fine.

Well I just found that one of the mirrors has bad dics. Even though they pass the linux mediacheck, the md5sum was incorrect on the iso's.

Downloaded from another mirror and they were fine.

I would recommend NOT downloading from andromeda.acs.uci.edu

Thanks!

Not the RH 7.3 disk

Not the RH 7.3 disk
This is the error i was getting. I had downloaded the .isos from different sites. 1 & 2 from mirrors.xmission.com and 3 from NASA.

The first two worked fine then when I put the third in boom error. Next I tried grabbing 3 from ximssion and haven't been able to get the whole thing yet.

So I grabbed 1 & 2 from NASA. I tried installing from 1(xmission) 2& 3 (NASA). Then I get the error in the second disk AHA xmission is f*$#ed. So I use all NASA disks. Disk three works is recognised and the install completes. Then it hangs while doing post install set up!!!

Any Ideas. I left it installing 7.2 this morning.

Nyone solve this et?
I grabbed the iso'sectly from redhat (sorry guys wow it was pokey) All checksums match and still it hangs while doing post installation configuration. Enigma loads fine!! That's two sum matched sets that hang on my puter at the end of the install.

But 7.2 still works?!?

Help
