Posted by eternaldisciple [send private reply] at August 05, 2001, 02:45:23 AM I downloaded RedHat 7.1 and burned the iso's to cd-r's. I booted directly from the cdrom which seemed to work, taking me to the boot prompt and then past to the language selection screen and all that. But after I choose the keyboard type I get an error message saying that it was unable to find the redhat installation cd in any of my cdroms. I thought it might mean that I need a floppy with the boot image or something like that, but it seemed weird since everything else seemed to run from the cd fine. any suggestions?
Posted by buzgub [send private reply] at August 05, 2001, 02:56:18 AM did you verify the image you downloaded? I can't for the life of me remember how, but it can be verified.
Posted by eternaldisciple [send private reply] at August 05, 2001, 10:38:26 AM No I did not do that, and I do not know how. Any help or other suggestions on how to do this or something else to get it to work?
Posted by gian [send private reply] at August 06, 2001, 12:27:44 AM I got that error once when my CD was scratched... I have no idea how you could verify it though...
Posted by buzgub [send private reply] at August 06, 2001, 01:21:50 AM http://www.raeky.com/md5sum.html has the MD5SUM program.
get the checksums from the MD5SUM file in the redhat download directory in the mirror of your choice.
run MD5SUM with the image's file name as the first argument, and it will spit out the checksum. compare that with the one in the file. If they are different, you need to download the file again. that MD5SUM file is just plain old ascii text.
Posted by triplec1986 [send private reply] at August 07, 2001, 11:46:00 AM U may be able to find a book on redhat 7.1 at your local library. If they have the book, then it's very likely they'll have the installation cd's. That's how i got my redhat. And then, once u have those cd's just burn the whole cs. Not just the iso's.
Posted by eternaldisciple [send private reply] at August 07, 2001, 01:01:03 PM That's actually kind of funny. My local library has a grand total of about 3 computer related books, one of which has a beautiful picture of an Apple II and one that's on Commodor(sp?) programming. But hey, I thought the Apple II was a great machine. I'd like to have an Apple I...
