Hi,
I am trying to set up Linux on my laptop. My laptop can boot from a cd, but apparently it is not booting from the RedHat Linux Cd. I tried to boot with a windows 2000 cd, and that works fine. And the Cd boots fine on my pc. Does anyone know what could be happening here? Any workarounds
FYI: I have no floppy drive. My laptop is a Toshiba Satellite Pro 480CDT.
Thanks,
Herbert.

Herbert - There are some install issues with Toshiba's. I do not know what they all are.
you should google for: "linux+toshiba+laptop". Lots of hits.
As a start, you might try:
http://www.linux-on-laptops.com/toshiba.html
Let us know how it goes.
Regards, Guy

Also, your CD drive on your laptop may not "like" copied cd's. Some CD drives just won't read them. If you got the images from the internet and copied them to a CD, that may be the problem.
HTH,
