:shock: Im not getting the boot screen! Im getting a DOS like promt that goes through all kinda of commands and ends at a box that says
Using DPMS DOS Prtected Mode Services:
(A BOX IS HERE WITH OPTIONS TO TYPE)

and then an input thing : "[DR-DOS] A:\>_"


:? :? :? :? :? :?

I should get a screen i used to see when i installed Red Hat.

when you insert the disk and boot from it, it should prompt you what to boot and give some options. but your saying that when you insert the cd and try to boot from it, you end up at a prompt that says its at the A: drive? if so i'd say you have a bad copy of the cd and to try redownloading that one.
