what can i do , what should i do , please help , this is my first time doing this and i just want to get to the main gui and then i have instrcution from there but it keeps rebooting no matter what choose . thanks in advance
what is the md5sums ? and how can i find out it's not corrupted ??

my systme spcs is
p233 , 32 MB 3com modem , sound blaster 16 sound card
can anyone please help and tell me why it keep rebooting and can't get to the main gui of the linux installation
Did you take the CD out? It seems like your still booting off of the cd!
You should be able to get the md5sums where you downloaded the iso from ( or any RedHat mirror for that matter). The md5sum lets you verify the integrity of the iso image. If you get your system up, try this:
Heres a hint: If you don't know what something means, try typing it into a search engine like http://www.google.com
guys i know the terminal but i'm not there yet , i'm having problem installing this thing , please read my first post , anyone please , i have burned 3 copies and i know for sre they wiork ,but no luck , read my first post .thanks in advance
I had similar prob a while back.
I think it's not getting the first instance of linux off the CD, it needs this to do the install.
Rather than try to make it work I downloaded the boot image for floppy and made a boot floppy to get a skeleton linux running.
Then the install worked.
It IS messy, rawrite & all that stuff, but believe me the experience is golden later on.
yes i tried the linux rescue but it will go back and reboot and i coem back to teh same screen , samething with the text option , guys it seems like i'm running out of options here , anyone before i give up ,,, thanks in advance
It almost sounds as if the ISO was not correctly burned to the disk. I had simular problems reading from a disk after copying the ISO to it instead of burning a disk from the image as I should have. If the image is just copied to the disk it will look like an audio CD with data written to it (on tracks) instead of a bootable CD ready to use..
The other possibility is to simply press enter at the "boot:" prompt. Instead of telling it the method of install, let it use the default.
But I would look into re-burning a new set of CD's. My RedHat distro was on 2 .ISO's ; enigma-i386-disc1 and enigma-i386-disc2.
