the link is https://www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/...install-guide/
when it boots i read the writting and it says my HP DVD DRIVE 300n is a ATAPI. now ive tried this "linux hdX-cd rom" but its still the same and nothing changes.
can you please help.
Try one of these taken from the site mentioned above.
At the boot prompt, when you first boot with the cd.
a — first IDE controller, master
b — first IDE controller, slave
c — second IDE controller, master
d — second IDE controller, slave
Since i don't know the set up of your machine try all of them untill one works.
Obviously only try one of those at a time when you reboot the machine.
BTW its =
inbetween hdX and cdrom
