I'm finally fed up with Microsoft and decided to learn a whole new world. I've made the decision to immerse myself into Linux and absorb everything I can. Besides scouring the Red Hat website, I've sought out other extremely informative Linux sites to memorize and digest as much as possible. I even went to my local library and they had some up-to-date Red Hat books (ver. 7.1, not too bad). This is not something I'm trying and giving it up in a week. So any and all guidance would be greatly appreciated. I'm using Red Hat Linux 7.3 but I'm having an issue. Let me set the table for you guys. I'm installing Linux on an old Compaq Deskpro 4000n that I had laying around. It's a P233, 48MB RAM, 2 NIC's, 36x CD-ROM, FDD, 4GB HDD. I downloaded the entire Red Hat Linux directory from a buddy's FTP site (5.81GB). I read the entire installation process directly from Red Hat's website. I burned the 3 ISO images as prescribed. Since this old Deskpro wouldn't allow me to boot from the CD, I created a boot floppy as prescribed. With me so far? I booted up my box with the boot floppy and the ISO Image 1 CD. I was guided through the beginning of the installation process. It welcomed me to Red Hat Linux 7.3. It asked me what language, what keyboard, and what media the install packets were located. I had the option of Local CD-ROM or HDD. I selected Local CD-ROM (again I had ISO Image Disc 1 in). This is the error I encountered: "The Red Hat Linux CD was not found in any of your cd-rom drives. Please insert the Red Hat Linux CD and hit Ok to retry." So can you tell where I went wrong or have any ideas on how to proceed? Is there another CD I should've burned with the remaining info in the Red Hat directory that I missed? What did I miss? I really want to install, learn, and become proficient with Linux. Any and all help would be immensely helpful. Thanks in advance.
