Hello, I am tired of running Windows server so I am trying to switch over to Linux. I have a dedicated box sitting in my closet for this. Here's my problem...
I put in Disc 1 and boot into the Install. Choose webserver and then I go through and uncheck things like Firefox since I want to learn how to install them myself and have the latest versions. It continues the install, saying it will require discs 1, 2 and 3. Then it asks for disc 2 and copys the files needed. Once it asks to insert disc 3, it prompts the error Unable to access the CDROM. Now I got these cds from work which we have used all 4 (Full Install). But I figured cds can get scratched and went off and downloaded Disc 3 again. After burning it, it couldn't read it either. I canceled the install and restarted it, same error.
Anyone have any suggestions? I am really trying to switch over my main box to Linux if I can get it put on and learn it.
Also I am not sure if this should be in the General section or the Newbie.
