Did you check the md5sum on the ISO's? Did you use the tool that Red Hat has to test the installation media?

i tried the tool that red hat had with the os but nothing happened, it just went to the choose language screen. everytime i type a command it just goes to that screen. as for the md5sum thing on the iso's i'm not really sure what that means or how to check it, if you could tell me that would be kewl. i just want linux on my machine real bad so that i can experiement with it, it looks like a kewl os
