Fatal error

Hai guys, I got stucked-up with the installation of RedHat Linux 9. I tested the cd's which contains the OS and passed on all of three cd's. When attempting for the installation it gave me the following error message.

"Running anaconda, the Red Hat Linux system installer -Please wait...
Probing for video card: S3 968 (generic)
Probing for monitor type: Unknown monitor
Probing for mouse type: Generic - 3 Button Mouse(PS/2)
Attempting to start native X server.
Waiting for X server to start.....log located in /tmp/X.log
1...2...3...4...5... X server started successfully.
XIO: fatal IO error 104 (Connection reset by peer) on X server ":1.0"
after 0 requests (0 known processed) with 0 events remaining.
Install exited abnormally
Sending termination signals....done."

Please help me to install the OS,
Thanks & Regards
Sunoj Ebrahim.
