Question Freeze upon CD Insertion - Redhat 9.0


Hi...

I've partitioned my hardrive to give linux 20GB of space. Upon installing Readhat 9.0, i get the errors,

error 2 : Bad magic

3 times... it's a little more than that, a few words, but that doesn't stop the installation from proceeding... I selet Personal Desktop then continue. After language setting, ethernet settings etc i come to the installation. While writing the image to the HD, it comes up, Error, Couldn't complete writing image to hd, you are proberbly out of space. with 20GB? i think not. After tryin this several times, it finally manages to start installing. It finishes with Disk1 and i insert Disk2. After clicking OK, it freezes, i have literally waited 2 hours for it to load. No luck...

any ideas??

Thanks in advance,
Micheal

You must select the option to "remove all linux partitions" if you use auto partitioning. What partitioning program did you use? You can just give the installer sufficient unpartitioned space and it will auto partition it for you

*Nothing... I'm downloading the Disk 2 ISO now caus after about an hour, it comes up with,

Error
The package openoffice-1.0.2-4 cannot be opened. This is due to a missing file or pergaps a corrupt package. If you are installing from CD media this usually means the CD media is corrupt, or the CD drive is unable to read the media.

Press <return> to try again.

[OK]

... The only problem is... I have 4 CD's of RH 9.0 and there are onlly 3 available for download... As switch or something...
