installing red hat 9


I would like to install red hat 9 on a old sony vio of mine. I downloaded, checked the md5's, and burnd the iso images

shrike-i386-disc1.iso
shrike-i386-disc2.iso
shrike-i386-disc3.iso

but when I boot the first one all I get is "ISOLinux 2.00 2002-10-25" with the blinking "_" next to it. The little activity light on my cdrom tray stays lit, so I guess its reading something but it will stay like this for 10+min if I let it.

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks,

I would guess bad burn or bad download.

Did you burn it as an ISO image; instead of plain old put-it-all-on-CD option?

If you r using K3b go to:
--->tools --->cd --->burn cd image
It'll check md5 of the downloaded image,
and then check it after the burn; anyway when you boot RH9 it checks the md5

If you r using Nero Express select the option:
--->Security copy --->Burn bootable CD
and hope the best

By the way.... burn it at max speed of 32x 'cause some drives have troubles with speeds above

I burnt it as an ISO using ISORecorder, as opposed to a single file.

"By the way.... burn it at max speed of 32x 'cause some drives have troubles with speeds above"

That might be a problem, I think it was at 48x
