Could be any number of things, from a bad iso burn to CD to a device not being supported. (CD Drive).

I might suggest you drop RedHat9 and go with the latest version of Fedora which A) might prove to contain more applicable drivers and B) will most certainly contain newer packages.

That is, if you are intent on the whole 'RedHat' thing. :)

also - redhat no longer supports redhat 9 so you're not going to be getting any updates from them :] looky looky

you can download fedora from or you can buy it from websites such as or if you dont have a high speed internet connection :) (the 3.1 GB dvd iso took me about 73 min b/c i found a server that'd give me a steady 708 KB/s, which was definitely not easy).
