Not able to start installation

I downloaded redhat iso images to 3 cd's. I created a boot disk. Now I boot from the disk and ask the loader to load from the loacl cd-rom. The next screen says I don't have the linux cd's in the cd-rom.
I know i'm missing something here, can somebody please point me in the right direction.

Thanks in advance

(Sys Config: XP prof; 40GB Hard Drive; Now added a new Hard drive and formated in windows so its NTFS right now; thougt I will take care of it later during Linux installation.)
