vmware 4 and RH9


I am trying to install a 2nd Linux machine under vmware 4. But when it gets to the 2nd disc it starts complaining about disc being corrupt or has errors on it. I have checked the MD5 sum and it is correct and have burned with a couple of different packages. any ideas?

TIA

I installed RH9 with the same media on another PC. Worked like a charm... Seems a VMWARE issue.

Nobody else seen this?

Just tried again this time with bigger virtual drive (4G) and more memory (176Mb) AND brand new CDs out of the box. Still bombs out when I insert the 2nd CD.

Next step is to try vmware 3.x... Does that support RH9?

Ok, if anyone is interested, I figured it out. If you get this error from the Red Hat installation (at the 2nd CD), it must be because you are installing on a PC with a CD-RW drive. When I got the error, I right clicked on the CD-Rom icon (on the VMWARE window and selected Edit... I then switched to the other CD reader and the installation continued without more problems... weird...
