Mediacheck fail and "The Red Hat Linux CD was not found"
I'm really new at this so please dont be mean. I bought a Red Hat manual that included a pair of CD's version 8.0 from good authors (and printing house) cheap cheap. Got a functionnal computer with windows 98 to many so I decide to try it out. The install goes find (text or graphical) until it annouces that the "install has abnormally terminated", closes a few programs and tells me to reboot computer. So I do! Same thing over and over. Windows is still installed on the hard drive! Still works and all. Probably means that I didn't get to the partition modifs yet!!
Try to install using mediacheck param, it fails!
Even tried to create a boot diskette from the CD, that's where I get the "CD was not found" error at the "Installation method" window.
I even tried 3 different CD-ROMs and that didn't help.
I've read something about a "sum checker" called md5sm I think, found the file on many FTP sites but it's just a text file. How are you supposed to run a text file in DOS to check if CD or image file is corrupted? Some FTP sites just let you read it, can't download.
You see, I'm sort of lost here. Not really setup to create an FTP server or other servers of any type but I think I might not have a choice.
