Installing red hat linux 9 from DVD problem

Dear fellow:

Last week i purchase a DVD having many red hat linux versions including 7, 8, 9, all the versions are there in different directories. the problem is that the DVD is not bootable.

I made a bootable CD by burning the boot iso image of red hat linux 9 from DVD to CD-R. Then, the other problem occur is that:
as the "now bootable CD" doesn't contain setup files, so the setup do not proceed, when i replaced "now bootable CD" with the DVD, the setup remained unable to access the setup files.
When i copy the whole red hat linux 9 directory from DVD to hard disc and again do the above process, then setup remain unable to access the setup directory, even i specify the partition in which the directory i copied.

I will be very greatful to you, if you will help me in this regard.
This is not a problem with DVD reader, as you know.

The easiest way to get an installable Red Hat 9 Linux is to go to:

and download the iso images.

Then burn the images to CD and you have the entire Red Hat Linux 9 distro on CDs which you can install.
