Question RH 8.0 interesting install issue


I attempted to install RH 8.0 yesterday on a celery 466, 512mb ram, 24x IDE cdrom and two 9gb seagate SCSI hdd. The system booted just fine, but when trying to run the install is just sits there for a while reading the CD then leaves me with an error saying that I have incorrect media for the install in the drive.

I then attempted the install on another box P3 800, 40x IDE cdrom, 40gb IDE hdd and everything went fine.

The only difference I can see is the SCSI drives. Maybe I'm missing something here. Anyone have any ideas what could be causing this?

On the 1st CD there's a bootdisk image with oldcdrom or some similar name, use that one to boot the system and try again

haha, well it just keeps getting better. This is the error I get now...

"The second stage of the install which you have selected does not match the boot disk which you are using. This shouldn't happen, and I'm rebooting your system now"

This almost seems like something a windows installation would do. anyway, if anyone has any ideas please post. Thanks!

The hardware isn't that odd. Doesn't matter anyway, it appears there is something wrong with the images i downloaded. For some reason or another they work on some systems and not others. I just burned another set of discs (with different ISOS) and it installs fine.

Check the mdm5sum of the ISO that you download.....Maybe you have a corrupted file....
