Red Hat Linux Upgrade


I went to redhat.com and downloaded what I thought were the three discks to upgrade my RH Ver 8 to ver 9. The files appear as:

shrike-i386.disc1(2, 3)-iso

When I try to open them, I get an error that says:

"Nautilus has no viewer capable of opening blah blah blah"

so...............what do ya think?

I don't think it's a matter of a corrupt ISO, I simply don't know how to run the iso from it's file form. That's the issue. When I download the ISO's from the site you recomended, I willstill have the problem of not knowing how to open them.

So, how do I open the disks now that I have them on my puter. That's the question. I'm sure it's a simple solution, I just am a complete and utter Linux n00b. Thanks.

Ok, download the ISO's, and download XCDROAST (www.xcdroast.org) and burn each ISO onto a cd. If your still running windows, open your favorite cd burning software, and burn each ISO to a CD. You can't open up ISO files, they are simply cd images.
