Install CDs

I am in the process of reading the linux redhat 9 bible, and I was able to scrounge up an extra laptop that I want to turn into a linux security machine with Nessus, snort etc..

My second CD got scratched badly, I was wondering what the easiest way to get another copy of the CD would be? Can I just download the install from somewhere? Thanks for any help you can give me.

redhat-9 is quite old, the book is ok for educational purposes, i suggest you get Fedora-Core-3 if you want a current RPM based distro along the same lines as Redhat, Fedora is Redhat's current community based FREE distro...

Easiest way is to download from one of the mirrors at Make sure you get the most up-to-date stable distro of your choice from whatever mirror you decide to use. If you end up choosing FC, this is easy, it is FC3.
