Installation Errors

Hi,
I have tried to install RH Linux 7.0 and 7.1 on my PC. When I boot from the CD, it detects the CD, prints a message like SysLinux - version - date and the installation stalls. Why is this happeneing?
How do I go about creating a bootable floppy? The size of the boot image is 1.7 MB
What is the use of the rawrite command? What is the file name of the image file which I copy to the floppy?
Any help would be most welcome.
Kapil

You can get the boot image from RedHat and put it on a floppy disk so that you can boot from that.
