    Semi-INstall - Corrupt CD, But no Problem


    Hello all. I'm attempting a Redhat 9 3 cd ISO install. on a 1800xp Athlon with 512mb ram.

    I was installing it in the midst of the night, and in the middle of the 2nd CD, I noticed the file copy progress stopped, meaning the CD was probably corrupt. I rebooted did a media test and yes it had errors on it. But besides that, Linux kernel and bash are completely operational. No X-Windows got loaded, but I still have shell.

    I'm redownloading the ISO as we speak. Once I have a new fresh CD to use- how do I uninstall what did get installed and try again?

    I can't say that I know of a method to do that. You could try the upgrade option, though. Not sure whether that will work.

    Just format the partitions you were going to use and install again. You can format them during the install process.
