Angry redhat 7.3 installation issue


Every time i try to install 7.3 from a cdrom, it gives me error saying "there was an error installing glibc-common-2.2.5-34" anybody got this error and how to work around. Please do not say media is wrong because i have used 5 different CDs already. I have enough disk space, cdrom is good. I am kind of lost.......

Well, your not going to want to hear this but you might have used 5 different cd's but did you check your download with md5sums to ensure a good download ? Its probably nothing with the cd but with that package as it most likely is just corrupt.

Check your iso your burning from to create the cd and see if it matches up with the iso you download.

Thanks for your reply, yes i checked it. I downloaded md5sum for windows and verified the ISO before making the CD. Actually there is more story to this, i was able to install 7.3 successfully when i let redhad decided the partitions but when i do partitions it will not install at all.

Additional story, i bought a brand new cdrom just for this and CD gets pass from mediacheck.
