bad sector for boot image

i've tried, though long time ago, to rawrite the boot and supp images (from red hat cd-rom) to 2 boot disks. there were working fine.  but when i try to do the same (images from sunsite this time and so is the rawrite program) it always abort with a message saying that there is bad sector no matter what (old or new) disk i used. just wondering what is happening. any way to get around this. i am pretty sure that not all the disks i tried have bad sectors.  thanks in advance.

assuming you've FTPed the image files from SUNSITE, did you ensure that you grabbed them using binary mode? if not, they may indeed be corrupt..

repeat the transfer from SUNSITE using the binary option in FTP and then try your rawrite again.. my guess is that it'll work..

Did you format them completely (ie. not quick)?

Are you trying this under NT or DOS or '9x? I know rawrite bombs with that error if used on NT.
