Need Help installing RHEL 5


Please Help me!!
I have a copy of RHEL5 files in my hard disk. I copied the content of the DVD into my local disk. I am using vista and i then write the contents into a new DVD. Now when i try to install linux from the new dvd it does not boot. Is there any way to install linux??im using laptop so no floppy drive. I can just use a pen drive. Please give me possible solutions!

Regards

Welcome to LQ!!

Where did you get the original DVD and the files? Normally, you would want to simply copy the DVD to another one---I don't know what happens if you simply copy everything to your drive and then burn a new CD/DVD.

Why not boot with the original DVD?

As I said, the thing to do is copy the DVD directly.

You could also download and install CentOS, which is a free clone of RHEL.
