    Redhat 9 Install, downloaded img files


    Greetings,

    I downloaded the first 3 cd rom image files for redhat 9:
    shrike-i386-disc1-apt.img
    shrike-i386-disc2-apt.img
    shrike-i386-disc3-apt.img

    I verified the check sums, they were all valid.

    I used winimage to to unpack these files, then burned them on to cd-rw discs using the windows XP copy & paste. There seems to be nice directories and files on the cd roms but redhat can't find the cd in my cd rom drive??
    Rawrite.exe found the bootdisk file just fine.

    Am i using the wrong program to unpack the img files?

    Should I not be using the Windows cd burn utility to burn the files onto the cd?

    Should I have downloaded ISO files?

    I am trying to install redhat 9 on an old Compaq Persario w/AMD thunderbird 900MHz with most of the propriatary peripherals replaced.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    .img is meant to be burned without pre-extract.

    under linux, try something like

    Code:
    cdrecord -v dev=/dev/sg0 speed=4 cdimage.img
    windows? use nero

    good luck
