Response to: redhat version 8

I have restarted several times, and I'm using the red hat cd to boot, and booting is successful off of install disk 1. That is the disk that leads my installation up to the point where it asks what type of media contains the packages to be installed.


I can see the CD in the finder. I can hear it spinning. Is there another CD other than the 3 install disks that I supposed to be using?

    Sorry, I am at a loss!

    I used RH 7.2 and that came on 2 CDs.

    I had a few problems with VPC recognizing CDs in this and other installs.

    But I was always able to get around the problems by ejecting and reinserting the CD several times.

    I don'tt know what to suggest other than:

    1) get a hold of RH 7.2 and use it

    2) Install RH 8 & CFMX on a real PC

    It is important to remember that the version of Linux is not really important, except that it must be recognized by the CFMX installer as a supported version -- we aren't going to use the Linux for anything other that a base from which to port the installed CFMX Directories.

    Sorry I can't be of more help!

      I just found the answer:

      if a CD drive is connected to a third or fourth IDE controller, it absolutely can not be used to install Linux, but with some tweaking the drive can be recognized by Linux after the installation has completed.

      My cdrom is on the third controller. I'm going to temporarly disconnect my second hard drive and put my cdrom on the second IDE.
