Problem creating bootable CD for Redhat 9

I downloaded the three ISO files from RH for version 9. I burned each of the three files to a separate CD with no problem. I changed my bios to boot from cdrom. I inserted disk1 and booted the machine but the old Mandrake OS kept coming up not the new RH installation screens I expected. I was advised to re-burn disk1 as a bootable CD. When I try to create a bootable cd using Nero it now tells me that there is not enough room on the cd to hold all the data. Disk1 is 669MB as an ISO file. My ultimate goal is to get RH 9 installed. Any suggestions? -Thanks

In Nero, choose Burn Image File or something to that effect. You don't have to specify it to be bootable or something. The ISO file is an image of a CD so if you burn the image (and not add the ISO to a CD layout - that's the wrong approach) you should be OK.
