Linux does NOT install anything from CD ISO image only form hard drive
I installed Red Hat Linux 9 onto my PC and laptop (downloaded the 3 ISO images from redhat.com) burned the ISO images onto 3 CDs (under Windows XP)
I have never been able to make a boot CD that worked, although made ISO image from ISOLINUX directory (under Red Hat Linux 9, following instructions from redhat.com) and CD boot is supported as Windows XP uses it. Linux would ONLY boot from floppy and I can ONLY install packages from hard drive in non graphical mode.
Linux is working, CD ROM is mounted, all ISO images are on CDs, I can read the content, but again, Linux would not install anything from the CD (Your Red Hat Linux CD 1 / 2 / 3 is needed) click OK, comes back that it couldnít find it!)
Iím kind of new to Linux, have little experience with UNIX but I canít work this one out and somewhat shifting towards a nerves breakdown, PLEASE help!
I must be missing a crucial point, aren't I !?
