I have a recently cleaned out system with WinXP Pro, and I'm trying to install RH9.0. I dled the ISOs and burned the 3 discs, but when I run the media test on them, disc 2 ALWAYS fails. (The other two discs pass.) I've re-dled the disc 2 ISO three times, from two different mirrors, and it passes the md5sum test (as do all of them). I've used both Nero and Roxio ECDC 5, and there was no change between the two. If I try to install anyway, I get as far as a package for a PDF viewer (I can't remember which one, offhand), and it says that I have a missing or corrupted file.
This problem sounds exactly like those that I've found in a handful of other posts, with one notable exception: all the other threads have someone using vmware. I don't really know what vmware is, but I looked up a little bit about it, and it seems to me that I'm definitely NOT using it.
I've dled this file multiple times, burned it at least 4 times, on two different discs, to no avail. All the other threads I've read refer directly to this vmware, and conclude that a problem identical to this is caused ONLY by vmware. Since I'm not using vmware, what could my problem be?
