Can not install Red Hat

I have downloaded the three ISO files ( shrike-i386-disc1.iso, shrike-i386-disc2.iso, shrike-i386-disc3.iso) The computer I am trying to install on is a Pentium 200 mhz. Did I get the correct files? The reason I ask is I am having a problem installing Red Hat

** (anaconda:95) WARNING **: Cannot open font file or font Kochi Gothic 10

** (anaconda:95) WARNING **: Cannot open font file or font Luxi Mono 5

Then I have to reboot and it happens again? Before burning another ISO I was wondering if mamybe I have wrong files first. Or do you hink a new Burn will help?

Make sure you verify the downloads to make sure that the downlaod went ok:

Then when inserting CD1 and you get to "boot:" run a media check "linux mediacheck" This will verify that the CDs were burnt properly. You should do this for all 3 CDs/ISOs

I did do the test Media on at least the first one and it check out OK. Did not chekc the others, but I can not get past CD1 during setup. Do I need the i386 versons? What is the difference in the two?
