another RH 8 installation problem


hey all. I have tried to install RH 8.0 several times now with no success. I had RH 7.3 running, but I wiped it clean. I can get almost to the end of the install, but when the time remaining hits about 50 seconds, it asks for disk 3. I pop in Disc 3 but it gives me an error stating this is the wrong disk. What's up with that? I thought I might have had a corrupted file, so I re-burned disc3, still no luck. I tried re downloading it from the same and different sites and burning it again, but still nothing.It still gives me the same message that it's the wrong disk, but I know it's disk 3. It's

psyche-i386-disc3.iso

right?!?!? Please help. Thanks in advance!

Did you have the installer check the cd's before you started the install?

Yeah, I did. I actually it up and running, just scaled down my install so it didn't ask me for the 3rd disc. But I am still curious as to why if anyone can figure it out.

PS I think the reason it was prompting me in the first place for the 3rd disc is because I was installing kernel dev software. I installed without it though, and it didn't ask me for the 3rd.

And are you now able to install the rpms on that third cd using the package manager? (if you would want to, that is )

Did you do a MD5CheckSum on the ISO?
There might just be a single corupted file on the disc.

no i didn't, I'll download the MD5 hash today and try it. I doubt it though seeing as how I actually downloaded it from 3 different mirrors and burned it seperately. But ya never know. I'll give it a shot!
