Burning iso files


I want to install Red Hat. I have downloaded the iso files from the ftp site. How do I burn them to CD so that I can run the instal? Do I just burn them like regular files?

No - you will need to burn them as images - see:

It would also be worth verifying your download:

if you're using windows, you can use Nero 6 to burn the iso's
or:
get a program called Daemon Tools, load the iso as a virtual CDROM, and use clonecd to clone the virtual drive onto a cd
