Bit of a Puzzle
I have 2 PCs with Win XP Pro SP3 and am going to install 1 or more Linux distros and send to Tanzania for a new college starting up. In preparation I did this:
1. downloaded Knoppix and LinuxMint Live CDs and burned the images to DVDs.
2. I also acquired a Linux for Dummies book with a 2 CD copy of RedHat 7.3.
All 3 Linux distros (RH, Knoppix and Mint) will boot on either of the 2 PCs.
Only the RH will boot on the one PC -- the other 2 that I burned from downloads won't boot on that same PC!
Both PCs have DVD ROM drives.
I'm left wondering if there is something different about the DVDs I burned and the CDs (RH) from the Dummies book, with respect to booting!

And just to add: redhat 7.3 is from 2002.
There is little point in using this today. No updates, no supports. It is hopelessly deprecated.You must always face the curtain with a bow.
