Unhappy 7.2 Installation hit a snag


HELP!!!!!!

While installing Redhat 7.2 (came bundled with my C++ programming textbook) I am installing it on an antique machine and everything has gone fine until

ERROR

The file /mnt/source/redHat/RPMS/zlib-devel-1.1.3-24.i386.rpm cannot bt opened. This is due to a missing file, a bad package, or bad media. Press <return> to try again.

I've taken the CD out and gently tried to clean it. and nothing!!!!!

Is there anything I can do to save this install???

I really want to try this out

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Perhaps you have bad media. Did you do the media check?

BTW, the rules you agreed to prohibit multiposting.
