VMWare and RedHat 9 - Corrupt file?

I have quite a serious problem: I'm trying to install RedHat 9 using VMWare Workstation, but it seems that my CD1 ISO file is corrupted.

However, Flashget is saying that the ISO is perfectly updated...

The file that brings up the problem is "db4-4.0.20.4-14" or something like that (I know that it's db4-4).

The ISO will be corrupt if redhat says it is, when you put the CD
in it will ask if you want to test the CD do that if that says its corrupt
then it is :( you will have to download or get a new copy
of the ISO

Are you aware of the MD5 signatures for RedHat 9 CDs?

I would still like to check them...

Maybe it could have been a bad iso source to begin with.  If you want to complete the install try to leave db4 off or any other database related add-ons.  Once you complete the install you can try it again later or download a new rpm from the internet.

Also you will find out if that is the only package you are having a problem with.

I had previously tried to remove all server-related packages. However, "db4-4.0.20.4-14" (whatever it is...) seems to be a basic file.

However, it seems that my CD has a wrong MD5, so I'm downloading a new one. Thanks for your help!

Hi GPFGSantos,

   I encountered the similar issue on RedHat Linux 9. I believe that so ISO download site has corrupted ISOs. I downloaded from other ftp site and the problem resolved.

  Good luck.

Thanks for both.

However, the problem seems to be solved simply by using another download manager - Flashget was corrupting the ISO. I later used IDA (Internet Download Accelerator) and it worked perfectly.

Thanks again.

PS to Admin: Is there any way to refund my points? I don't think the question was well-posed, and it happens I actually figured it out...
