RH9 Boot CD


I have all 3 RH9 CD's burned and ready to go, but I dont know how to create the boot CD under Windows. In the Docs at Redhat.com they give the instructions on how to create it on a Linux system but since RH9 will be my first Linux system - those instructions are useless. So if you could tell me what to do to create the boot CD, that'd be awesome.

Burn the iso with any cd recording software. don't burn the iso file though. I heard there's an option in nero "burn image" somewhere, that's the one you want

Make sure you have a good download and burn the iso as an image file. Read the windows help on how to do this.

How To Check MD5sums On A Linux Iso Image

You can also order ones done right and that will boot if you can't figure out how.

Burn then all as images and all will boot. I think you must burn them so that they all are bootable.

The first 3 iso's are the ones you'll need, the others are sources if I'm correct.
