Why don't you just boot off of the CD? The first CD is bootable

I don't know about that, but I do know that the CD didn't burn correctly. The first Redhat CD is always bootable. If you burn it, and it doesn't boot, then you didn't burn it properly.

You may want to go into BIOS to make sure it is set to boot from the CDROM. Your best bet to make sure you download files correctly is to use FTP, and make sure you type binary before downloading the files.

burn as iso image

On Roxio CD-burners, you need to specify that you are burning the iso via "create CD from image" or something like that, and then specify iso format. I didn't do this once, and the CD was not bootable, just a set of regular data files.
