Talking 7,1 Install grief

Im running WinXP on one HD and trying to install RedHat 7.1 on the other.
I used 2 cds i burned from the internet and when i boot i can choose the normal options (gui,text,etc)
i choose gui and it gives me a message like
"exec: anaconda
no such file
installation abnormality
sending kill signals." long does it take for a boot image floppy to boot?

It doesn't take all that long using the boot floppy however from the erro message you gave I would bet that the images you got are corrupted. I would try a new set before going through the hassle of using a boot disk.
