User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.5; Windows NT 4.0)

Description of problem:
It would be great to see a CD image released whenever there is a new 
version of the distribution. We could use it to boot the computer and see 
the compatability of various hardware components. It would identify 
components that are a potential problem, eg. unsupported drivers. A good 
application for this is for an individual to take the CD-ROM to the 
computer to see if Redhat can run on the PC which he wants to buy.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Burn CD from image
2. Boot PC

Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
