I don't have any experience with Linux. I decided to get some and downloaded the RedHat Linux 7.3 which I need to install now. However there is a lot of stuff that I downloaded and I just want to know what to do with it. For example what I downloaded has 3 directories - docs, os/i386 and iso. But in the iso I have 2 subdirectories, again doc and i386. In the i386 subdirectory there are :

valhalla-i386-disc1.iso
valhalla-i386-disc2.iso
valhalla-i386-disc3.iso
valhalla-SRPMS-disc1.iso
valhalla-SRPMS-disc2.iso

and in the doc there is:

valhalla-docs.iso

Now, I suspect that if I extract these iso files I'll get the same things as in the docs and os/i386 directories on the top. I could check this, but you know, there are a lot of files there.
So, am I right for the iso content? Which files do I need for the installation and when I transfer these to a CD does it matter which go on the first CD and which on the second etc.? Can someone direct me to a good document dealing with the RH Linux installation?
Thanks in advance.

Bigboss is right, use the image files to burn install CDs then install them. If you just install the default configuration for workstation install, you just need the first 2 CDs.

Dont worry about the other disks (4 and 5) They are SRPM's (source RPMS)
SRPMS contain the source code in RPM (RedHat package manager) format.

Just burn the three ISO CD's and boot off disk 1.

btw - 7.3 is very old, but then again maybe you are doing something specific with that release.

7.3 is benchmarked by major EDA companies for their tools.

srpm = source rpm, the packages with the source code
Use md5sum soignatures to verify the ISO images before you burn them into cds.

besides the md5 you can try the boot option mediacheck, i had some iso with the right md5's but the packages were damaged :S ¿?

P.S: RPM = Red hat packet manager
SRPM = SOURCE Red hat....(not te binary, just the source and a .spec file to build a binary .rpm)

rpms are for red hat what .msi to microsoft....there are also other packet manager out there.....

bye...

valhalla-i386-disc1.iso
valhalla-i386-disc2.iso
valhalla-i386-disc3.iso

there three files is enough.

you can burn the three file to CD and. hange the CMOS setting to boot the PC from CD-ROM, and you can install it now.
or if you have windows in you pc, you can put the three file in the root directory of windows such as:c:\,d:\etc, using the WinISO to extract the files, and you can install it.

but redhat 9.0 is the newly ,and it can install from the internet
