hi
when i had installed redhet 7.3 it came in 3 disks. they were all the installer disks and all the disks were full. so i think u could check it up with the book u bought it with.
please dont give the subject as "big problem", give it as something which defines ur problem.

Seems that ur magzine has customized ur RH7.3 because standard RH7.3 comes in 3 cds.. (nt sure) ..
So either u r missing one cd or ur magzine hz customized RH7.3 in wrong way!!

Never used that.. book..
Better mail to the publisher to ask that if it hs three cds ..
or if it has only 2 cds then complain...

I remember having experienced such a problem in the past. May be it was with RedHat 9. But I had all the CDs. The problem occured to me as RedHat was quite demanding regarding resources. And my CDROM drive and RAM were not exactly perfect. I chose to drop RedHat and installed Debian instead. May be if you try a text-based install, you may succeed.
