    hiya

    Have a look here: http://www.redhat.com/download/howto_download.html

    You need to download 3 .iso images, then burn them to CD's (as an image). Depending on what software you are using this will be done differently...

    If you have not burned a iso file into a image not another iso file, it can be tricky and burn up a few CD's if you have not done it before.

    There are some decent short tut's on this, just google it or checkout the distro's web site for basic instructions.

    Also check out http://www.linuxiso.org. It's got ISO images for download, as well as instructions on how to burn them.
