Questions about RH9 Downloads


I have downloaded the i386-disc1 through 3 iso images (Redhat)...and have them burned to CD. Do I need the following iso images as well? What do these files contain?

shrike-SRPMS-disc1.iso 13-Mar-2003 22:39 608M
shrike-SRPMS-disc2.iso 13-Mar-2003 22:43 645M
shrike-SRPMS-disc3.iso 13-Mar-2003 22:46 425M

Thanks

thanks for such a quick response...

One more question...

I thought i saw somewhere where you could run windows inside a linux screen? Is this possible? If so, what versions of Windows can you run?

This might be a big dertermination factor on if i go with a full installed of linux only, or if i do a dual boot option.

Thanks
