Subject: Re: RHDB 2.1 ISO not working

Message-ID: <> (raw)

I downloaded the iso from a mirror in hawaii into my windows machine.  I 
burned it at 6x speed with my HP burner and EasyCD Creator software.  I then 
tried to use it on my Redhat 8.0 machine.

here is my fstab file:
LABEL=/                 /                       ext3    defaults        1 1
LABEL=/boot             /boot                   ext3    defaults        1 2
none                    /dev/pts                devpts  gid=5,mode=620  0 0
none                    /proc                   proc    defaults        0 0
none                    /dev/shm                tmpfs   defaults        0 0
/dev/hda3               swap                    swap    defaults        0 0
/dev/cdrom              /mnt/cdrom              iso9660 noauto,user,kudzu,ro 
0 0
/dev/fd0                /mnt/floppy             auto    noauto,user,kudzu 0 

The mount my cdrom with Gkrellm.

I open up my terminal and cd into the cd directory.
I run "./Install" and I get this error:
bash: ./Install: /bin/sh: bad interpreter: Permission denied.

Of course, I am doing all this while using the root account.

I've tried it in Gnome, KDE, and Blackbox.

The weird stuff that I found on the cd are these:
The "Install" scripts were named "install" with a lowercase i.
The "RHL-7.3" and "RHL-8.0" directories were in lowercase and they had a 
underline instead of a hyphen.
I also think I saw that the execute permission was missing from all files 
and directories.

If you think they my burning software could be the culprit, you may be right 
but I've never had a problem like this before.  I've burned my redhat os 
iso's with no problem.

Could it be my fstab setup?

Thanks for helping me.  I've been a windows slave for a long time and when I 
started using linux, the first thing that hit me was how great linux people 
are with help and support.  When I get good enough at linux, I'll pay it
