Re: CDR CDROM not valid

Oops.  I bet you used ftp to transfer the files, one at a time.

You didn't say under which operating system you created the disk.  If you did
it under Windoze95, then you'll have file name case problems.  Otherwise
you have problem with symbolic links and file permissions.

The directory structure of the ftp'd files MUST match the directory
structure of the RedHat site.

The first CD I ever cut also didn't work.  Once I got the structure right,
it worked just fine.

BTW, you just made a nice coaster for your coffee cup.
