This is almost certainly due to either a bad CD image or a problem with a CDROM
Does this happen to be a CD you burned yourself?
Yes, this is from a CD I burned myself. I used Adaptecs Easy CD Creator
version 3.5c to burn the ISO images. Before burning the CD I ran the checksum
against both ISO images and they matched up perfectly. I downloaded the ISO
files from ftp.freesoftware.com.
My system setup:
256 MB RAM
Western Digital 20.5 GB hard drive
Matshita LS-120 floppy drive
LITEON CD-ROM LTN382 (This is the boot CD-ROM)
Yamaha CRW8424E CD-ROM
U.S. Robotics 56k Voice Winmodem
U.S. Robotics 56k Fax/Data external modem
ATI Rage 128 Magnum SD AGP video card
Creative Labs Sound Blaster Live Value sound card
Hewlett Packard DeskJet 810C printer
The hard drive was a virgin install. I bought the drive so Red Hat could have
its own hdd.
Would you suggest making the Yamaha CD-RW drive the boot drive? Or do you
suggest downloading the images files again from a different source?
I would suggest trying to get the ISO's from ftp.redhat.com and reburning them.
There are lots of people who have seen this problem, all at different packages.
All of them seem to have burned their own CDs.
