Need Help in a big way...

I'm new to Linux and I just put a system together consisting of:
Pentium MMX-200mhz
48 mgs ram
Sony 8x4x32 CD-RW
Old Fujitsu 1.2 SCSI HDD
SL-586V-Plus Motherboard (Oldie, and crappy..I know)
Oak Technology 4mb PCI Video card

Anyway, after fine tuning the components, d/l the iso and burning it and making a boot disc, I'm having problems.

The system boots using the disc, and I can enter the language and keyboard info. When I get to the installation screen and it asks for the cd-rom, I get the error message of the disc not containing RH 7.1. I do have the 1st. disc in the cd-rom however.

I've tried over and over but I can't get going with the install. I've even downloaded RH 7.1 again and burnt it again, but no go.


Thanks in Advance

I used Isobuster to extract the contents to a folder and then burnt it to a disc with the latest Nero.
