i posted approx. a week + ago in regards to a error with the install of Red Hat 9. the responses pointed me in the direction of the md5 checksum of the ISO. i had to redownload the ISO image's on 56krap and then i did a checksum on them. everything checked out and this time i did not delete the ISO's but i did burn them to CD. i am still getting the same error and here is the whole thing that i get when trying to install.
