How to burn Red Hat Linux 9?

Dear friends,
I have two questions:

1. I have downloaded 3 iso files of Red Hat Linux 9 (don't ask why, but I have to), namely: shrike-i386-disc1.iso, shrike-i386-disc2.iso and shrike-i386-disc3.iso. My system is: 2.8 GHz Celeron, 1.5 GB RAM and 25 GB space allocated for Linux (There are no NTFS drives in the whole HDD, all Windows drives are FAT32).

Now if I want to make installer CDs of Red Hat 9 (so that I can install from these cds and very importantly BOOT from these) what do I have to do? I will use Nero 8 for burning.

2. Is it possible to make installer DVD (and also Bootable) of Red Hat 9? If so, how?

You burn them at a low speed on a good quality CD medium as an ISO Image File. If you cannot find that possibility with Nero, you can download and use CDBurnerXP for Windows. There are screen shots to help you.

Your system must be made to boot from a CD, either by changing the boot order in the BIOS or by choosing the CD drive during a one-time boot when the system POSTs

The forum has a guide for burning ISO files.

Someone else should tell you if and how you can make the thee CD images into one DVD.

You want to burn it as an image. After the burn open the disk, it you see XXX.iso you have burned it as a file and it will not boot. If you see a list of files and sub directories, you probably burned it the right way. Keep in mind that RH9 will probably not function on hardware that was made after 2003. There is simply no way for it to know how to deal with chipsets, etc that were made after it was released.

Also keep in mind it'll be very insecure due to lack of updates since then...
