Installing Redhat


I am going to attemp to install redhat 9.0 on my old computer. From what I've seen it will work. It will be used as a small webserver. Basicly, I'm confused on what to do. I've read how to install redhat and such. But I don't understand. So I need to download the three iso (shrike-i386-disc1.iso, shrike-i386-disc2.iso, shrike-i386-disc3.iso) and burn them to a CD. My burner says that I need to put in a boot disk. I'm assuming this would be a redhat boot disk. But I can not find a place to download one. I've read through this redhat.com/docs/manuals/linux/RHL-9-Manual/install-guide/s1-steps-install-cdrom.html#S2-STEPS-MAKE-DISKS site, but it does not make sence. It makes it sound like after I install it I create a boot disk. Please help! I'm confused.

The first CD is bootable. Just put it into the CD player and reboot, and the installation process will begin. All you really need to do is verify that in your BIOS, the CD appears at the top of the list (ie, before either the floppy or hard drive). Good luck and welcome to LQ. -- J.W.

you're probably selecting, make bootable cdrom, in your burning software.
you don't need to. just burn the iso as it is. select burn cdrom image.
the bootable part is already built in to the iso image.

Thanks for the quick responce. I have Sonic RecordNow! and I can not find the burn cdrom image. I read the help file how to, but the option they tell me to click is not there.

you can download cdrecord with it's cygwin dll for windows.
it's the standard linux cdrom burning program, or get nero or something else.
with cdrecord you would run cdrecord --scanbus to find the device number
of your burner, then assuming the device was something like 0,1,0,
the command would be
cdrecord dev=0,1,0 speed=12 -v imagename.iso
substitute the full pathname and name of the iso image, and change
the speed to whatever you wish.
