Problem Installing REDHAT 9

Hi All

i'm a NEwbie who love linux,and i just downloaded 6 Cd's of REdhat from redhat official website,
when finish,i burn them to a CD, 6 CD's

when i boot wid da cd,it work,and i press enter to enter the Graphical installation, then i choose the language then the keyboard language then they ask me to choose the location of the iso images,;
normally it must be on local cd-rom with the first CD;but when i clik on local Cd-rom a message appear sayin no redhat installation in the cd!
i copied all the Cd's in the harddisk to run installation from it ,but when i choose again,,harddisk,i have same problem!
i copied also,da isolinux,still same problem!!

hope u all gona help me!! wid dis,i'm really patient to use redhat!

by the way,i got typically the same problem wid fedora core !!
