copy of redhat9 dont work


Hey there,
I have a boxed set RED HAT 9 that i got of a friend.
What i want to know is.....i burnt a copy , it has everything on the disks
but when i try to use it to do a fresh install it says i havent got a red hat disk in the cdrom drive??
I have compared the disks and the copy has everything on it.
Is there any way to make a copy so i can use it to install.


Thanks for any help

How'd you create the first 'copies'?

Try using dd to create the image:
dd if=/dev/cdrom of=/home/iso/cd1.iso

And so on. If you get errors, try:
dd conv=noerror if=/dev/cdrom of=/home/iso/cd1.iso

And give them images a go. Maybe they are write protecting them? Always use CDRW's until you get it sussed out, don't wanna waste perfectly good CDR's

Cool

Burn an iso in linux:
cdrecord -scanbus
cdrecord dev=x,x,x speed=x -v -eject /path/to/iso/filename.iso

Where dev=x,x,x is what you find from cdrecord -scanbus. And speed=x is the max speed

Cool
