"Please reply ASAP"---This does not work here. We are all volunteers and we reply when we get around to it.

What version of Linux?

Do you know that you have a good CD? (eg will it boot on another computer?)
Did you download and burn the CD?
One common problem is copying the image file to CD as opposed to using the "burn from image" option.

You need to answer ALL of my questions.

Note that RHEL4 is obsolete---you might want to get something more modern.
