1mill+ time.. can someone help me instal linux
hi all,

I downloaded cd iso images cd1, cd2, and cd3 from the ftp site for redhat linux. so now I need help on making boot disc and such... if someone can set me up with how to create boot disc I think I may be able to carry myself thru the instal.

Here is the installation guide from RedHat.. This is the part for the boot disc

boreo 10-12-2003 09:29 PM

No problem.

Planet X 10-12-2003 09:33 PM

ok lol, sorry this is another newbish question...

Now. Do i burn the iso images as cd images or do I burn them as data ???

boreo 10-12-2003 09:53 PM

Just click on them and the program you are using will burn them automatically.. Or are you using Redhat to burn the isos?

Planet X 10-12-2003 10:06 PM

im using windows xp and roxio.

boreo 10-12-2003 10:10 PM

So just click on the ISO you downloaded roxio should come up and just click record or whatever it is.. LOng time I don't use it :) ...

And you should be able to boot directly from the first CD.

*smacks head and becomes frustrated(sp?)*

ok ok ok, i got the boot disc working fine. np with that baby, it loads into the redhat linux 9 boot screen everytime. but when i put the disc in and hit install from local cd-rom....NOPE it says no cd.

and i know im pointing it to the correct cd rom drive because it flashes as in trying to access it. so can someone please help me burn these darn iso's. thanks in advance.

ok its me once agian, hopfully for the last time in asking for help in the installation.....

ok, the boot disks work. so does the iso images i burnt onto blanks..... but now when it goes thru ddc check I believe it hangs up after the last line "Detected 2 Ports" and I try to press numerious buttons to bypass it but it doesnt work.

even when I use linux skipddc command it stills goes thru it...and i mean Im at the point where NOW it is personal Redhat...*waves fist* I will install this sucker on my pc. lol

Help, I don't know
If that is the USB ports, I have read where it hangs there. This is really for 8.0 but it may still work.


Don't know if that is what you need or not. :scratch:


:D :D :D :D :D
