Description Tang 2000-04-05 05:57:30 UTC

I have used RedHat6.1 for several months. I downloaded the zoot-i386.iso
and made a bootable CD of RedHat 6.2 last week. The RedHat6.2 CD can not
boot on my PC this time, though the old RedHat6.1 CD which I made several
months ago can boot smoothly on my PC all the same. I tried several times
and the result was the same one.

When the RedHat6.2 was booting, it gave one line of message:

    1. FD 1.44MB  System Type-(00)

Then it seemed that the RedHat6.2 CD tried to read something from the
floppy disk A:. After one minute or so the CDROM failed to boot up and the
harddisk booted up.

My PC's configurations are:
CPU             AMD K6-2 450MHz
Maiinboard      ASUS P5A    Rev.1006
BIOS            AMI 4.51PG  1994-1998
CDROM           ASUS CD-S400/A
HardDisk        IBM 10GB
RAM             128MB

Then I tried to use the same RedHat6.2 CD on a Dell Optiplex GX100 PC
(Celeron 400MHz, 128Mb RAM, 3.2GB HardDisk) and the RedHat6.2 CD booted
smoothly on the Dell PC.

So it might show that the zoot-i386.iso file should have some important
errors in the booting section and device-seeking section.

If you try a different CDROM drive in your system does it boot properly?

The ISO image we put up is indeed bootable, so there was either a problem with
the image that you downloaded (I would suggest checking the md5sum to make sure
that the file is corrupt) or there is a problem with the method that you used to
make the CDROM.  What method are you using to create the CDROM?
