2 quick cents...

CentOS IS RHEL. Only the labels have been changed to protect the ... ... .. You get the point!

They almost have matching md5s... They are so the exact same. If you wanna practice for RHCE, CentOS is the absolute, positive, (2nd-)best way to go.. Next to using RHEL, itself, of course!

Good luck on the cert, by the way!

Burning a disc:  Did you check the ' md5sum ' before burning ?  And if the
md5sum was correct, then you either have bad media or cd/dvd burner. Hmmm!

You can obtain a Fedora 8 or 9 DVD (32 or 64 bit) for $1.99, or a Fedora 8
Live CD (32 bit) w/kde for $0.99 from < discountlinuxdvd.com >  

IMHO: were I working toward a RHCE, then I'd practice with Fedora vice Suse
