Unhappy Trying to reinstall linux


So since i deleted a necessary package my redhat system crashed. Now, when i had initially installed redhat using a friends disk I copied all the files from the CD-ROM on my external hard drive (of course after installing through the CD)

Now I need to re-install linux and I have no idea how to actually use those files to create an actual automatic bootable installation CD?

Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks

Many Linux installs are done from a CD or DVD. Maybe that would be the best way for you.

If you have a copy of the files from the CD, wouldn't it be the easiest way to reinstall the missing package?
