RE: Damaged install disk

Awesome response time! Many thanks Fred and Ed.

The original disk was from a boxed set.  The files are not available from
RedHat now - I just googled until they turned up.

Thanks again,

Did you down load this as an ISO from the web? if not, where did it
come from? After downloading you should verify the md5sum in case it
got damaged.

I'd expect the images you can get from the RH web site to be identical
to the ones you started with (presumably offical RH CDROMs).
