boot problem


I have Windows 98 SE on my computer and want to try Linux. On DVD of a computer magazine I found RedHat 8.0 Evaluation.

I burned the 2 cd's from the iso files and put the first cd into my cd-rom. When I try to boot the system I get this error:

ISOLINUX 1.75 2002-06-14 Failed to get sector size, assuming 0800
isolinux: Di0142C49F

The CDs works fine on another computer.

Can anyone help me?

don't count on what i say, but i am pretty sure this has to do with a BIOS bug...which will still hold what you say as correct with it only doing it on your machine....
