Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I am using Redhat 9 at home. I would like to install FC-5 on another machine. I downloaded the 5 .iso files from the Fedora site to a machine having Windows Xp and used Nero to burn the .iso images to 5 different CDs. The first 4 CDs got burnt properly. However the 5th CD is not burnt properly, in the sense the file which is burnt is corrupted. I used the 'sha1sum' program to find that the files which I downloaded are not corrupted. I found that that the sha1sum output for all the 5 .iso files matches with the SHA1SUM file contents posted in the Fedora site.
Now I would like to burn the .iso image to a CD. The .iso image is present in the machine having Redhat 9 (The file is not corrupted - confirmed using sha1sum). I am unable to burn the .iso image to the CD. I tried k3b, xcdroast (I did not try cdrecord). I feel that these tools are burning the file as a data file and not as .iso file. I am sure that the burnt image in the CD is corrupted because I used the same sha1sum program to verify the file in the CD and it mismatched !!!
Please tell me as to how can I burn the .iso image to a CD in Redhat 9. Is there any tool (other than k3b and xcdroast) which I need to achieve this task or are there any already inbuilt tools in RH9? What is the correct usage of these tools to succesfully burn the .iso image to the CD?
(Appologies for the long mail I have written !!).
