    cannot install packages from CD


    Hi,
    well I managed to install Fedora Linux on my pc for the first time and to log in...

    now I tried to install additional packages using add/remove but for some strange reason I get a message which, tells me that an error have been occured and then the installation exits. It happens to every package I have chosen to install...

    can anyone tell me why it happened...

    p.s.
    Do I need to download the Java sdk for Linux or is it shiped in the fedora cd?

    SIJP

    when it gets to the phase: "installing individual packages"
    it gives me the following error:

    "Error installing packages.
    there was an error installing packages.

    Exiting."

    any ideas?

    Are you installing as root? Is the proper cd in and is it mounted?

    well I am logged in as root...
    and the proper CD is in...

    but I am not sure if its mounted... do I need to manually mount the CD or should it automaticly be mounted when I insert it to the CD-ROM?

    I guess I did something wrong then, because I just retried to install the packages and it went smoothly...
