Copying redhat 4.1 cd to HD
I’m trying to install Linux on my machine for the first time. I had a Redhat 4.1 CD and I would like to install it. I have tried many different specifications to install straight from my Sony CDU33a-01 CDROM, but none of them worked, now I just want to copy the whole CD to my hard drive and install from there. I have an empty 2.6 GB hard drive, partitioned into 900mb, 900mb and 700mb.
I would like to have Win95 on the first 900mb, have a copy of the redhat CD on the second 900mb, and install redhat on the 700mb.
Here the problem, using DOS copy, or DOS xcopy or win95 copy, I can not copy all of the files to my HD. It will start to copy the files, but then I get an error, "File does not exist", and the copying stop. I have noticed that all the files that I get an error with have a " + " in the name. EX. Gcc-c++-.7
Is there any way that I can get a copy of the whole CD on to my Hard Drive, any method would be help please.
