Hi Ali. What do you know about your hardware?
How is your CD-ROM drive connected to your computer? Through one of the
IDE channels or through some other means like a SCSI port or even a sound card?
How old is the computer that you are using? Quite recent or a few years old?
Can the computer BIOS find the CD-ROM drive? Do you see the CD-ROM drive
mention when the computer first starts up?
Can you "see" the CD-ROM drive from another operating system such as
Windows or even DOS? Can you read the RedHat disk 1 from that other OS?
What we need to do is to determine if your problem of reading the RedHat
disk 1 is a matter of a faulty CD-ROM disk or a matter of faulty/improperly
connected/unusual computer hardware.
