I just received a purchased copy of Red Hat Linux.  When I tried to
install it, it failed loading initrd.img.  I tried several systems with
identical results.  As suggested, I tried "expert" - same results.  When I
tried to copy the disk with a file to file copy, it that file would not
copy. I tried to find a download on your web site but could only find the
entire Linux which I do not want.  Can you send me another disk, or let me
know where to download the boot disk contents, please?
