    I just downloaded RedHat Linux 8.0!


    As in the subject, I just downloaded RedHat Linux 8.0 (from Linuxiso.org)! I downloaded all 5 of the ISOs. I put disk one in, booted, and it just booted Windows! I had no options at all, to do anything regarding Linux. Did I just do something wrong? Or what? I would truly appreciate any help. Thanks.

    Change your boot order in your bios. Its probably booting off the hdd first.

    Check ur boot preference!

    It seems have forgotten to change the boot sequence of ur BIOS.

    make ur First boot preference to CD Rom in Bios. and then insert the disc 1 of 8.0 in ur PC and reboot it.

    hope it works

    While I hate to say it, but I already had first boot registered to the CD-ROM. Is there anything else that I might be able to do to get the Linux Installation working? I would truly appreciate any help. Thanks.

    being able to read the CD in windows will show you if you have a coaster - but not if your CD is ok but not bootable (in otherwords if you can read it in windows it's probably ok, but maybe not)

    What I was thinking was that his CDs are apparently not bootable, since he couldn't boot from them. Therefore I wanted to see if they're readable at all. If they are, he can use rawrite to create a boot disk.
