Win2K/Linux problem

I've got a working install of RedHat 7.0 and I'm attempting to upgrade to 7.1.
I have created my boot disk useing rawrite and rebooted. My machine then proceeds to book into w2k anyway.
I've done all the obvious stuff like checking my bios (won't boot off the CD either).
I've also tried to use autoboot.bat this crashes when loading anaconda.
I'm fairly sure the images I used are ok since they came from a PC Plus Magazine DVD.
I'm stumped, any help gratefully received.
Is there a way of fireing the install up from within linux perhaps??

That is most likely the problem. I have never seen anything work out of a magazine, or if they do, they always have problems.

Read this thread, another similiar problem using a cd out of a magazine.
