Hello everyone. My name is Logan and I'm a Linux Nub. Wishing to shed the chains and binds of windows I came across a book ( a very large book ) in my college bookstore about Red Hat Linux 7.2. It came with a pair of installation CDs (or at least I think so) and I just tried to install last night. After a large portion of the installation was already completed, it ejected the CD and told me to insert disc 2. To my dismay, I could not find that second CD. I was wondering, is there any way for me to burn a CD with the remaining information and simply continue the installation or will I have to scrap it and make 2 new CDs? Any advice would be appreciated.
buddy its really tough to get iso's for such an old linux.
moreover if somehow you obtain that, then i future you will face problem in getting softwares for that.
so its better to install some new distro of linux.
I was just looking at slackware (on the advice of a co-worker) and I went through Linux.com to look at the distros there. I then found a mirror listing where I could download it. Unfortunately I have no idea what I am supposed to download.
Slackware is not generally considered a new to linux distribution, but it will get you up to speed fast :-P. If you dont mind using these forums or your friends then go for it. The files you need can be found here
you want to download the .iso files and then burn them (as an image) to a CD.
For help regarding ISOs and burning them, take a look at http://iso.linuxquestions.org over to the right it says "need help?"

Hey, the whole reason I'm jumping to linux is for the challenge, and the person who pointed me to it said it's definitely that. "Getting it installed and configured is a challenge, but when you have it set up, You'll KNOW how it all works." I think were his exact words. It sounds like a good time. Thanks for the linkage.
