Just click on them and the program you are using will burn them automatically.. Or are you using Redhat to burn the isos?

And you should be able to boot directly from the first CD.

Should tell you how to burn and verify the CD.

How's that??

Post Help, I don't know

If that is the USB ports, I have read where it hangs there. This is really for 8.0 but it may still work.

nousb

Don't know if that is what you need or not.

Later
