How do you run it?

You should run it like this:

md5 shrike-i386-disc1.iso

NO

You should run it from the command line like I told you.

Don't burn anything.

Yes I did exactly the same
md5 shrike-i386-disc1.iso
I get the following error message shrike-i386-disc1.iso can't be opened.

I meant the MD5SUM from the Red hat website.

I think I know what the problem is. That md5 program only supports short filenames. I don't know there might be a version that supports long filenames. But you can simply rename "shrike-i386-disc1.iso" to "disc1.iso" and run

md5 disc1.iso

OK I got something cryptic, MD5 (disc1.iso) = 34048ce4cd069b624f6e021ba63ecde5. Now what next

Compare that with what you see in MD5SUM file. Open it with some text editor. The do the same with disks 2 and 3.

The MD5Sums match exactly with the MD5SUM from the Red Hat File. So what should do I do next

I wish I knew

Maybe you burn them in the wrong way. Try again. It could've
been a bad disk too. Try burning to another CDR or CDRW disk.

Burn disc1.iso and verify that you can see it's contents in Windows.

Then try booting from it.
