Unhappy Install from CD


I also have an install problem.
I bought a Linux Book "Red Hat Linux Bible", that included 3 CDs for installation of Linux.
My computer has two hard drives, one for Windows and the other I planned to use for LInux.
I formatted the Linux drive to erase any Windows files on it.
I placed the first CD in my CD drive and began the install. As each CD loaded and completed, I would insert the next CD as required. When all CDs had been installed onto the Linux drive, the program instructed me to reboot to begin Linux.
When the reboot finished, I was told to click on the "next" button on the bottom of the screen.
I moved the mouse, but the cursor stayed where it had appeared. There was no response to any keyboard key that I pressed.
I re-installed the CDs numerous times trying different things without success.
Can anyone help me?

genhan, I've just created a new thread for you. Next time please try to create your own one, even if your problem is very similar.

Which version of RedHat is they one you're trying? Try also the ctrl+alt+f1 key combination after the reboot. It should give you text mode login screen.

Edit: The title must stay as it is now...
