I currently have RH 2.6 installed and would like to downgrade to 2.4..
When I try to run "autorun" from the CD, the script does not execute.  Might you have any suggestions what I should change or set?

Autorun, is normally a 'windows' thing! In order to 'auto run' a linux CD, the easiest way is to ensure that the BIOS is setup for booting from the CD. Then follow through the install process.

A wod of warning! - Redhat installs are normally tested for upgrading, but probably not for downgrading - Windows stops you from 'downgrading' as well. Although the process will work (ish), there are going to be a number of configuration issues that you will need t omanually sort out, and this may be quite tricky to do depending on how the install process copes with 'newer' files already being present on the hard drive.

Think carefully about whether you *really* need to do this.
