Install RED HAT 9 = cant find red hat CD


im trying out red hat 9. I dl'd the 3 iso's from thier website and the boot disk image. i insert the boot disk, it boots (of course) and then i get to a screen to choose "Local CD ROM" I choose CD rom as the install. then it asks for the "Linux CD" funny thing is.... ITS IN THE DRIVE..... ive tried 3 different types of CD-R's and burning the iso slower... etc... and nothing

Try inserting the disks in different order. Somtimes they are mis-numbered. If all else fails one of the large chain bookstores should have a copy of Linux User and Developer. It's a Brit Mag but I see it in the US very often and Issue 33 (Current) has a 3 disk set of RH9.

Also if it was recorded on a CD-RW with a MS OS these can cause problems sometimes. With CD-R this is not a problem. Not sure exactly why.

Try downloading from a different site or RH10.....ahhh.... I mean Fedora.

did u burn the cd from ISO image, if not then there is your problem. If the cd was correctly burned then u can run a mediacheck to see if the cd r ok. Try this first before more instructions r given.

I also used nero but did u use the option File --> Burn Image this will decompress the iso into cd format.

It's not actually decompression. That's why iso's are so large
Try booting straight off the CD.
When your comp starts up go into the BIOS and change the bootorder so that CD is first. (you can get to the BIOS by repeatedly pressing delete or F8)

******** caution... don't mess with other bios settings unless you know 100% what you are doing. They can cause the instant (or sometimes over a little time) transformation of your computer, into a very expensive desk ornament.

Once you've done that.. and it boots off the CD.. should work fine.
Could have been that the boot floppy didn't have the correct CD drivers. It's happened to me before.

Don't forget to go back into your bios and change the boot sequence back to what it was before.

Certain hardware setups will cause this problem. It happened to me at work on a Compaq/HP server. I found info on HP's website which explained what was happening.

I replied to an earlier post about this exact problem.
