Problem on installing redhat 9!

I am trying to have dual boot with win server 2003.
but anyway, i boot up with the redhat 9 cd...
and i choose the language I want and stuff..
and then it asks me to select what source I want to install red hat from, I try to choose CD ROM! but that doesnt work!
because the cdrom power turns off or something! I cant even eject the CD out!
though I did boot the redhat installer from the CD, but then the CD JAMS UP when it asks me the source of installation..

hope somebody can help me out..

What hardware are you trying to install on? I've seen similar things with Dell hardware...

If you haven't paid for Red Hat, I'd suggest you try another, more friendly distro
