    I dont know if I understand your question correctly, do you actually want to CREATE a bootable CD? or do you want to dl disc-images of RH9 that is bootable when burned? for the later:

    Dl the isos from, for example, sunet: http://ftp.sunet.se/pub/Linux/distri...9/en/iso/i386/
    .sig - There never was a .sig?
    I own a Schneider EuroPC with MS-Dos 3.3 and it works.

    Follow the destructions from that link, make sure you down load the .iso files.

    Once you have the .iso files, you should be able to use Roxio Easy CD Creator, or Nero to burn them to a cd. Do not, just burn the iso file to the disks, if you search in each of those programs, you should find an option which is "Burn Disk Image" or something similar, which will allow you to select that iso file, and then burn the image it contains to the cd.

    As for boot floppies, you should be able to find the rh9 boot floppy image on the rh download site as well, maybe even mentioned in the article I linked. Once you have that, you can use a dos app called rawwrite.exe (sp? maybe rawrite.exe, I dont know.) to burn the image onto a floppy.

    rawwrite.exe should be available for download from the rh site as well, or just search google for it....
