Iso images for red hat 8.0


i'm about ready to give up, i've tried burning the red hat iso images but nothing seems to work i always seem to get unusable cd's.
I ran the md5sum check and all of the numbers matched so i am guess that the files are not corrupt.

I used Roxio easy cd creator 5 platinum to burn the cd. i used the burn cd from image option and that didn't work i was not able to open the file and see any of the folders or files. i used the write track at once option and i even tried using the bootable disk (with no emulation) option and still nothing happened.

I have also tried to mount the .iso files them selves from within linux but that didn't work out at all.

i'm open to any suggestions

The disks might be fine, but just are not bootable. Have you tried using an installation boot floppy, then pointing it to the disks?

I haven't had problems creating CD's using Roxio Easy CD Creator. If once the CD is burned and you can't see the files something ain't right.

If you can't even mount the iso's from linux are they really good? I take it this is true for the whole set of the RH 8? Have you tried downloading the iso from a different site? Or burning at a slower speed?

i really couldn't tell you what the issue was with the Roxio but i got nero and burned the images and they worked perfectly. In fact this was the first time i didn't have to use autoboot.bat from dosutils my machine booted it.

Thanks very much for your help
it was most appreciated.

You can also put the ISOs on a parition your not planning to get rid of, boot the computer with the RH install disk, and then point it to the partition the ISOs are on, that's what I usually do.
