RedHat failed to work

By suisoga ·
Just downloaded RedHat 9 from Altogether: 3 ISO file.
I used winRAR to extrat them and then copied them into 3 dirrefent CD (each with about 650MB).
I used Windows XP CD copier program which was installed defaultly in Windows XP.

But when I tried to run the program. i.e. load CD into the CD-ROM, the autorun function failed to work and I just could not install RedHat.

Similiar process of downloading and copying Mandrake 9 into CD. And it works with autorun when I load CD intoCD-ROM and Step by Step installation windows pops up.

Any idea why RedHat failed when the same process works on Mandrake?

the first cd should be bootable. you may want to try
creating the cd with a cd app like nero or roxio
ez-cdcreator. I don't think xp will let you create a cd from
an iso image

The kernel of XP is in conflict with the program iso image. Use easy CD create. No problem with Windows 2000. Also, you might want to get the Linux Bible. Great information on this one issue.
