RedHat 9 disc 1 got corrupted


Hi guys,
I am having problem with my Redhat9's first disc, which worked perfectly till today.
Actually some rpm files got corrupted bcoz of the damage to the disc.
I want to add good packages and make a new disc.
The steps which I followed were:
1] I copied all the error free files to my hd
2] Added the remaining files which were corrupted on the disc from a good source
3] I used the file "bootdisk.img" which was present on my disc in a folder named "images" as a bootable file for the new disc
4] Using Nero I made a new disc
4] The new CD booted but it asked from where to get the files? The same dialog box which appears after giving "linuxaskmethod" option.
5] I selected CDROm but it didn't work. It says that there are no setup files

You can download a new disc if you really need one. If you go onto any of the Fedora Core (Redhat) mirrors, I think you can still find a directory for Redhat 9. An alternative would be to buy the CD's from an online vendor such as Cheeplinux.
