cd not found error rh9

just downloaded the 3 iso files directly from redhat. then opened iso's to burn contents onto cd's. put disk 1 in and everything works fine until it asks me where i want to install from. tried placing files on a partitioned fat32 drive but no luck. says the cd is not found when i try installing from cd's. also tried installing from ftp from linux but kept getting disconnected.

this is my first experience with linux so i'm extremely brand new. somewhat windows savvy but wanting to expand. any ideas on what can be done? cd's read fine when running windows.

computer is 600mhz hp with 256mb ram and 30gb hard drive. has dual cdrom's but unplugged one to see if that might be causing any problems.

thoughts/suggestions/ideas? thanks.

You don't open the iso's, just burn the whole iso file as an iso image. One for each cd. What cd burning software are you using?

i burned the iso to the cd and also tried burning the opened files from the iso. neither of them worked in text or graphical mode. using roxio ezcd 5.5.
