Problem installing Redhat 9 in vmware
Posted on 2004-08-22
I have a laptop running winxp and vmware 4.5 workstation. I am trying to load Redhat 9 into vmware. I am following instructions from sans.org for the install as I am taking their GSEC Security Essentials course. I am doing a linux text method of install and everything seems to go fine until sometime after I install disc 2 and it is downloading packages. I selected everything for install per sans.org and when I get to xpdf-2.01-8 on disk 2 it gives me an error saying media may be corrupt or unable to read the cd, try again.
I have downlaoded and burned iso's for disk 2 from 3 different sources and I have no reason to believe that the cd is bad. I can find the file in question on the cd so I have no idea what the problem is.
Is there some way to skip this file and continue on with the install? What should I try next?
