OK, I spent all day getting my machine to boot between NT and 98. Now I want to install RedHat 7.1 on the 13GB I have left, it's unformatted, unpartitioned.

I downloaded the disc1 and dic2 iso files and burned them to CD, but my machine won't boot off them. I made a boot disk but when it boots and I get through the keyboard and language parts, I get the error "I could not find a red Hat Linux CDROM in any of your CDROM drives."

When the boot.img file is loading I see that it sees the CD-ROM.

What is going on?

Thanks for any/all help.

When you burnt the discs did you specify that the filesystem is an iso?

If you used Adaptec CD Creatory, you must specify that the Filesystem is ISO9660 instead of Joliet.

Specify it as a iso image to burn quickly.

what do you see when you look at the cd in windoze?
if it is a single file , you made an iso image of the iso image. If not Adeptic, what did you burn with?

Wink Finally got it.......

Finally I got it. Thanks to everyone for the help. In adaptec you need to specify the filesystem as ISO9660 AND when you put in a CD-R, you can't drap and drop, you need to go to File-->Creadt CD from CD IMage and then specify the .ios file and it makes it perfect. What a pain in the ass. Now that I have that issue solved I have 20 more. Oy.
