trouble getting linux set up.

I am haveing trouble all get set. I made the boot disk and put in in my machine. It reads it ok and loads the images from it ok but when it asks for the cd rom i put it on and says it can not find what it wants. I downloaded the intel ISO files for all 3 cds and they all download right, but it wont read them when i put them in the computer after it asks for them. Did I have to dl more files.
I am trying to install Red Hat. and i am new to this so if I sound stupid thats why.

I got these files

It sounds like you may have burned them in the wrong format. If you burn the .iso files on a cd as just data, it will burn it as the .iso file. You need a burning program that will burn images (basically, it unzips the iso and burns it like a copy of another disk)
