Red face Boot from RHEL5 Desktop DVD:New Install returns---Could not find KERNEL IMAGE:none


I have a Compaq 6710s hp notebook. I have RHEL5 desktop installed on it with the in built partitions which i think have been created by the RHEL5 Desktop DVD SETUP which runs when the media is mounted in the CD\DVD ROM.

The label of the DVD is

RED HAT ENTERPRISE LINUX 5 DESKTOP


When i insert the dvd and the system boots using it,

it gives these options besides others,

-To install or upgrade in graphical mode, press ENTER

-To install or upgrade in text mode, type linux text PRESS ENTER

-ecourts-install option installs machine(It will format entire system)

-ecourts-recover option will restore the Operating System only(It will not format the user area)



When i select the first option, it returns

Could not find kernel image: none

When i select the second option with "linux text", it returns

Could not find kernel image: linux

What to do now?I am new to linux and cannot figure out what the problem is?

What i was attempting to do was to install some other OS (CENTOS or WINDOWS XP).For that, i wish to confirm that even after cleaning up my whole hard drive, i can install a fresh copy of RHEL5 from this RHEL5 DESKTOP DVD.

The contents of the MEDIA are


Folders


1. Client
2. images
3. isolinux
4. VT
5. Workstation.

Files


1.eula.en_US
2.EULA
3.Readme-as.html
4.Readme-bn.html
5.GPL
6.
7......are the READMEs in different languages.
23.RPM-GPG-KEY-FEDORA
24.RPM-GPG-KEY-FEDORA-TEST
25.RPM-GPG-KEY-REDHAT-AUXILIARY
26.RPM-GPG-KEY-REDHAT-BETA
27.RPM-GPG-KEY-REDHAT-FORMER
28.RPM-GPG-KEY-REDHAT-RELEASE


i WANT TO KNOW THAT IF I CLEAN UP ALL MY HARD DRIVES AND THEN INSTALL SOME OTHER OPERATING SYSTEM LIKE ubuntu OR wINDOWS xp


tHEN
CAN I RE-INSTALL FRESH COPY OF THIS RHEL5 DESKTOP USING THIS MEDIA(RHEL5 DESKTOP DVD).

OR I WILL NEED SOME OTHER DISKS LIKE KERNEL IMAGE DISK OR ANY OTHER LIKE OR SOME PARTITION HELPING SOFTWARE ON DISK? or some other, i dont exactly know the installation process in linux operating systems.
