RHEL AS Disk 1 Bootable or not,creating boot disk.

Is RHEL AS Disk 1 Bootable?

I did not create a separate boot cd for redhat but put the rhel-3-i386-as-disc1 CD in the cdrom drive to boot it up.

The CD is not recognised as a bootable CD so I cannot install redhat.

Do I have to create a separate boot CD for booting?

I have a dell 8400 system with xp on one partition and unpartioned space for linux.

Also I do not have an existing redhat or unix system but only have windows xp so cannot create a boot cd using unix if required.

How can I create a boot cd in windows and use it if a boot cd is required.

I don't have a floppy drive in my pc so cannot create a diskette also.

Please help. I am stuck on the first point and I need to get this done imemdiately.

Thanks for the prompt response.
