RedHat 7.3 install problems :-(


I'm very new to Linux & im trying to install RedHat 7.3 on a new partition (winXP on the other partition). I downloaded/extracted/burned the 3 cd's, and made bootdisks with both boot.img & pcmca.img.
Everytime, I get to the message, "what type of media contains the packages you are installing?"
I select CD-ROM, it says, "the linux CD was not found in any of your drives"
So, I copied the RedHat cd1 to the hd (c:/rh/), and selected "HD"
it shows both partitons, and I eneter the path /rh/ but it says not found :-(
Any suggesstions? I'm stumped!



LAPTOP:
Gateway 9500
P3 1.0
256 RAM

Make sure your bootdisc is for CD-ROM.

I didn't see that option when making one; I used rawrite from the rh cd to make it, asked for a source & destination. I must of missed something?

No there ain't any option. The whole point is RTFM. When you were at the ftp site, there was at least an index file that contains all the filenames & stuff.

Just set your bios to boot from the CD, and the put the first CD in the drive. It will come up with a prompt, and just press enter, and you're into the graphical part of the install

Thanks for the help, it finally worked :-)
It was the pcmcia driver disk that I made that was corrupt or something, I made a new one, and it worked out great.
