I have a purchased version of Red Hat Enterprise Linux v. 4.3 which I am trying to install on an x86 system.

The documentation keeps saying to boot from Install CD 1 (CDR0362US-R3), however it does not appear to be bootable.  I have tried it on three systems that CAN boot from other CDs, and it will not boot on any of them.

I DID find a “boot_image” file in the root dir of CD#1.  Is this not a bootable CD?  And, if not, how do I begin the install of Red Hat EL for this machine?

Many thanks!
