Did you just copy the ISO to the disk or did you burn it? Copying the file that you downloaded onto a disk won't work. Here's a link that might help explain it (there are many others - this just came up near the top):
If you open up the DVD you burned under windows and see one big file (the (iso) file, you didn't burn it right. You should see a whole directory tree of files on the DVD.
You can't just drag and drop an ISO. An ISO is a block-by-block image of what goes down on the CD (somewhat like a ZIP file). What you need is an ISO recorder. This is a handy little utility that hooks into the desktop and makes ISOs burn properly.
Never mind. First of all, you're quoting stuff you could only see if you'd burned it OK, secondly a number of people already suggested that.
I don't have the setup handly, but I think you can set the install path. Try telling it to use /mnt/scd0 or /mnt/dvd. If neither of those options works, use the ALT+Fn buttons to look at the setup output streams and see if one of them provides a usable device ID. And/or a command prompt that you can use to mount the DVD assuming you need to. [ February 18, 2005: Message edited by: Tim Holloway ]
Loudly announcing something is true and finding out you're wrong makes you feel foolish.
Finding out you're wrong and refusing to admit it makes you LOOK foolish.
you used somebody else's third-party script to combine several ISO's meant for CD's into one ISO sized for a DVD? well, no wonder that isn't working for you then. i'm amazed such a thing would even boot up.
either download a ISO image created for DVDs from the start, or burn your CD-sized images onto CDs. don't try to jerry-rig a DVD ISO out of stuff that wasn't meant for a DVD.
my apologies; i must not have been awake when i wrote that — i confused mr. Narsay for the person with the original problem, mr. Khan.
i am, however, quite surprised to hear that you can merge ISOs in this manner. i would have thought that the installer wouldn't know in which directory to go looking for what file; perhaps Red Hat's installer is different from the Mandrake ones i've been using these last few years.
