Unhappy Boot disk problem 7.2

The message I get from the ms-dos prompt after i type the rawrite.exe command under the dosutils folder is:

"Enter disk image source file name: (then a bunch of symbols and characters fill in the space): No such file or this a bad file?

I'm trying to make a boot disk for Red Hat 7.2 since I can't boot from my cd-rom. I got disc 1 and 2 downloaded successfully and burned (finally).

Please help
