Unhappy installing red hat enterprise 2.1AS

I downloaded the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 2.1AS software from one of the distribution server listed on the

The directory I downloaded has structure like this:
2.1AS - en - os - i386 - SRPMS

Under the SRPMS directory there are whole bunch of .rpm files.

I have a new Intel P4 machine with Windows 2000. I am not sure how I can install the 2.1AS linux using all these .rpm files.

Please, guide.

Your help is much appreciated.

You have downloaded all the source rpms that make up RedHat as2.1. This is not very useful to you unless you want to completely build AS from source.
