"Not the correct RedHat Linux CDROM"

Got RH9 out of the box and am ready to install it.  I plopped in the first disk and everything went smoothly.  The install was about halfway through, and the computer spit out the first disk.  "Please insert Disk 2".  So, I inserted RH Installation disk 2 of 3 and I get a message that states "That's not the correct Red Hat Linux CDROM."  What's going on here?  

By the way, there's 645MB of data on the disk.  I tried burning it to a 700MB cd and got the same result.

Thanks.
Eric

I've seen this issues with this myself, but it turned out to be bad media.   I then burned iso  from linux as well as
Windows based pc's.  You might try creating disk two again.

Use md5sum on the second iso image and compare to the published MD5SUM
file on the ftp server.

I had the same problem too.  It turns out that there's a bad signature on CD#1, which causes it to reject install disks 2 & 3.  Since it sounds like you bought the boxed set, you can call support (1-800-REDHAT1), and they'll send you a new CD#1 (CD's 2 & 3 should be fine)
