Question Help Installing RedHat 9 Linux

I'm installing RedHat 9 linux now and it's about .033 seconds to finnish and 51 MG (33 packages) remaining for the installation using the 3 CD and I receive the following message:

The Package XFree86-doc-4.3.0-2 cannot be opened. The CD is probably bad.
It hangs and does nothing. It seems like during my transfer, my CD has been some how damage.
I am connected to the internet though. Is there some thing I can do right now to salvage this installation?
Is there a way to download this package online and complete the installation? What do I need to do now.
I would really much appreciate any help in this regard.

Can you continue the installation? Or are you stuck? 'Cause if you let the installation finish, you can install that package later. (This package looks like a documentation package only; shouldn't be critical). That's my guess

There is no option to continue the installation. I have only ok on my screen. The reason I want to install RedHat 9 linux is because I want to install Oracle in it. I have got problems with FC6 regarding installing oracle and I couldn't find any help.

Is there any other version which is more reliable to install oralce in it out there?

You can't possibly say that it's distro's fault that your CD is screwed.

Anyway, you can hack any system to allow Oracle installation, and if I remember correctly, FC is one of approved distros for it.

For production system, use CentOS (RHEL minus RH branding and price tag) if you can't afford to pay RHEL/ SuSE fees.

Check your cd3,maybe it was bad.CentOS is good,it comes from RHEL's SRPM.

Is there no retry button?
I had the same problem on FC6 fresh install on one of the last packages and I wasn't about to submit and start all over. I kept clicking retry and after 30 or 40 clicks (give or take a hand full) it finally succeeded.
