Installation


I downloaded the iso images for RedHat 9 and burned them using Windows. My computer won't boot to the first CD. Also, I can't access the rawrite utility from a dos prompt. Lastly, I tried downloading "bootdisk.img" and my computer keeps telling me the file is too big to copy to a floppy even though it's 1.38 MB.

Any suggestions?

go to linuxiso.org

On the left hand side, they have a link for "How to burn ISOs". It has directions for all the popular programs. Follow that.

ok, first make sure your cd images aren't corrupt, run an fsum utility (u can get one at downloads.com) check the md5sum and verify them with the one's at redhat's site

then, burn them with nero using the create cd from image file

then make sure your bios is set to boot from cd

Thanks everyone, I finally got it to work with Nero. Now I can see all the files. I had to burn it correctly "Burn Image" - not "Write CD" - I'm all good now!
