*resolved*redhat 8 cd2 isnt working


I burned CD2, 3 times!!! eveyrtime I rebooted and the stupid setup program said that CD2 isnt working. I can read it easily from windows and it doesnt look like it's burned with errors. I even downloaded the whole CD image again! but still it doesnt work. What is wrong?!!!

Also I tried to copy all the image CD's to my win98 partition (hda2) and then install redhat from that partition. But setup gives me error and says that it cant mount the partition and that "this should not happen, rebooting..."

This could help.
With CD 1, enter the following at the command prompt: mediacheck

This command run a script to check is the Imagen file is no broken.
Select check another CD and insert the CD2. The script will check it automatically.

You said all the 3CD's have failed the mediacheck?

Then discard the CD's and try to download from another PC and another mirror.

Thats all I can say. May be somebody out there knows more about this.
