welcome to LQ!!

First, what is "Linux 8"? We need the name of the distro (version)---eg RedHat, SUSE, Ubuntu, Fedora, etc.

Also, please try to give us the EXACT error message and where in the process it occurs.

Note that if you have the same error on different computers, it could mean that you have a bad CD.

Redhat Linux 8.0 is very, very, old (2002) and is no longer a supported distribution.
If you wish to stick with that flavor of Linux you should really move to Fedora 11
