Thumbs down RH9.0 Disk 2 Installation


Well, i have retail rh9 and i go through installation just fine until i hit the part with package installations. It starts to install my selected packets of software up until on of the last few. It's xfree86-tools and it gets halfway through then requests for disk 2 to complete the installation. Fine. I put in disk 2. Guess what, when i do that it says wrong disk in drive when it's clearly the RedHat Linux Installation cd disk 2 of 3!!! Did i just get dicked hardcore by redhat by them not sending me a valid installation disk 2 or what!? i can't not install that packet as it is required and i can't unselect it in the list. Please Help. Thanks.

I had that happen and I just kept hitting ok and it took it. Dunno if it'll help you. If not I am sure RH will send you another set.

hi

it seems that your disk is damaged. did u check your media?. if not do that first. you will get it as the first option when you start the installation. make sure your ram is good too

i media checked the disk a bunch of times passed every time. i have 640mb ram i'm assuming that's enough to run redhat. F*you i'm not goin back to windows. Many others have had this exact prob (did many google searches) but no hard evidence on how to fix it. I just can't comprehend how a manufactured disk that's made 10000000's of times the same way and mine is different.
