Can you verify your media according to the instructions at
http://rhlinux.redhat.com/anaconda/mediacheck.html? Also, please note
that Red Hat Linux 9 has reached its end of life.
Hi Jeremy, I did the media check and it passed, sorry I forgot to
mention that...actually I tried two different disk copies of redhat 9
and they both gave the same error. Also, I know that RedHat 9 has
reached the end of its life, but I really want to use one of the best
free linux server operating systems out there. Thanks again for your
