    Red Hat 9 Help


    I have recently downloaded a copy of red hat 9. i have a blank hard drive and i have been trying 2 install linux with little success, i have created a boot floppy and have loaded the install screen, i have selected my country language etc BUT when it asks from which source im installing linux from i select CD-ROM Drive and it says no linux source avaible, i have tried booting straight from the CD but i get the same problem. my disks were downloaded in ISO's and so the files + folders are in the correct order. help plz, im truly stuck

    I've had a similar problem before, i never figured out what it was, im assuming a error in the iso or burning, I downloaded again from a differnt mirror, and it worked. But I might suggest something newer the rh9, its a bit outdated, and I don't this its uptodate on its kernel. if you want something redhat for a partitucular reason, try fedora core 2.
