Trouble making Bootable Linux Disc

Hi . Im a Newbie to Linux

I have Downloaded Iso Images of Red Hat Linux 9 (shrike) i have downloaded all the three disks.
Im using Windows Xp sp2 . i made a bootable disk of linux using nero
cd(boot) and using the boot.img file as boot file required and selected all the directories wch i have downloaded as disc 1.

everything went fine whn i restarted the system using boot 4m cd it booted
linux screen came
press enter to setup in graphical mode but after that
After i press Enter
text mode came and it asked me for language and after that it says no Red Hat Installation disc found.
options like install 4m hard disk n all r there.

Can anyone plz tell me how can i make linux installation disk so tht i can easily install linux on my system using these Cd's

also tell me the procedure for rest of the 2 cd's will they b bootable also.?

this is my first post
Hope to get some replies..

If you use Nero, you can burn the ISO as an image. The ISO should have all the bootinformation in it.

Open the full Version of Nero, and make a new project. Then do Recorder > Burn Image.

Choose the ISO to burn and burn it.
