Re: Red Hat Install

can you try network installation?
Share the files via NFS on another machine and try to install via nfs...

Re: Red Hat Install

Your installation has been done. Assuming the media you have is good, you may have an issue with the cd-rom drive. You might want to get the server utility cd out and test it.

An NFS or ftp based install might prove the server out.

On a regular computer with dos you can create a network boot disk for the install.

Re: Red Hat Install


You need a special boot disk, because the installation kernel has a bug preventing it from accessing the CD player.
