Re: [linrad] Red Hat 9

Stan, I have had some problems installing RH9.0 even w/o linrad and I have ran all previous versions of RH linux since 4.0.  Turns out they sent me a bad CD #1 which caused the installation to reject CD #2 and CD #3.  I don't know how many other people may have got bad media, but I suspect there may be quite a few.  BTW, the "bad" media passed Red Hat's media check program.
Just to let you know in case you get the same problem.  Red Hat is supposedly sending me a new CD #1.

Subject: [linrad] Red Hat 9

I am just getting started setting up Linux. I purchased a book "Sams Teach Yourself Red Hat Linux 9 in 24 Hours", and it came with 2 install discs for Red Hat 9. Before I get started, has anyone had any experience with 9? Should I just plod away at converting my new computer to Linux? I have a 2.8Ghz P4, 512MB DDR SDRAM , 160GB HD,and NVIDIA FX 5200 graphics. I also have a Turtle Beach Santa Cruz audio card and a M-Audio USB Audiophile external audio device. I suspect I'll have to buy a Delta 44 card sense I could not find Linux drivers for my above audio cards.
