I'm encountering difficulties trying to install Red Hat. I went to, found a site, downloaded the 
ISOs, then burned the ISO as an image using NERO v. The CD boots 
the machine, but when I run the CD check it fails. Then I tried copying from 
an FTP folder thinking the download might have been the problem. No luck, 
same problem. I was told to use something called FreshDownload, but I can't 
get that to work. This thing is so hard to install I'm having doubts as to 
whether I'll actually be able to use Red Hat. Any suggestions for an 
extremely confused first timer? Thank you.
