upgrading redhat

so I have downloaded the three iso images for red hat 9. i have them both on 3 different cds and on my existing redhat 7 machine. this is not a dual boot, it is strictly linux.

i can't seem to find anything to tell me what to do from here. i've tried mounting the iso's to a mnt directory, but i could only get the first one to work. if someone could point me to a step-by-step installation guide from this point, i would be really grateful.

any help would be greatly appreciated...

If you need help with burning ISO images to CD.

The HowTOs on can help you, look under Help with iso images.
