samba install trouble

when trying to add the samba package to set up file sharing between my red hat box and my windows box, i am constantly prompted for my Red Hat Disk 2. it keeps trying to load a file called eal3-certification-doc-0.7.1 and it apparently cannot find it. it just keeps prompting me for the cd. what can i do about this??

I don't know enough specifics about either samba or red hat to fix your problem. It is possible that either the disk is scratched, incorrectly burned (manufactured etc.) or that your CD drive isn't reading the disk properly. Try finding the file yourself, or going to a different computer to look for it. If it's there, and your computer can read it, then I haven't been much help. If your CD is a CD-R (or RW) and think it may have burned wrong, then try:

cd /dev
dd of=null if=cdrom
(you may need to substitute hdc or hdd for cdrom if links are not set up)

This Will not always show problems if the burn went wrong, but it often does. You can also do an md5sum of the whole disk:

cd /dev
md5sum cdrom

And then compare the value returned with the md5sum of the iso image for the disk. They should be the same.

I know this probably wasn't any help. Good luck.
