I have met a strange problem. When I installed Redhat 9.0 on VMWARE 4.0, all went fine until it told me that some packages on the second CD could not be read, and probably the CD was corrupted. However, it is a good CD, 'coz I installed these packages in other machines using it. Assuming that this CD was damaged, I downloaded the second ISO from redhat and made a new CD, but I still failed with the same problem. So I decided not to install these packages. It took me a lot of time (starting over and over) to decide and remove the "bad" packages (xsane, xpdf, yelp, xsri, xscreensaver etc) and packages which need them from the installing list and finally I got redhat 9.0 installed. -- I only installed 507 packages with a total size of 1616 MB. Pretty compact, huh? On the other hand, I successfully installed redhat 8.0 on vmware with packages freely chosen.
Though I guess I can install these packages later, I still wonder what happened. Any opinions? Thanks a lot.
