Alright, I figured it out. ISOLINUX is not compatible with some BIOSs; therefore, booting from the v8.0 CD would not initialize. So I dropped down in ver. of RH from 8.0 to 7.3 and seeing that v7.3 uses SYSLINUX (or something close to that) to initialize the mootable instalation CD process as opposed to ISOLINUX the installation did not hang as a result of my older BIOS.

Once I finish installing 7.3 I will put the v8.0 CDs in inorder to upgrade my system...

and there you have it... not too elequent, but just as effective.
