Question okay the redhat 9 image is burned on a cd...


After that, I booted up to the bios and set the IDE CD Drive to start first. All the files are in the cd, but it won't start. I followed all the instructions too.

When you open the cd in Windows, do you see many files or just one ending in .iso?

BTW, RH9 needs 3 cds.

The cd you burned is not bootable. Are you sure you burned it as 'image' and not a regular disk?

If you burned it correctly you can try making a startup/install floppy and then use your disk to install the OS. I think redhat has raw-write in dosutilities folder..(I know that mandrake does) You can use rawwrite to make a floppy-then put it in floppy drive and reboot.
Good Luck
