I have ISO files saved on cd's.
1) 6.1-RELEASE-i386-bootonly.iso
2) 6.1-RELEASE-i386-disc1.iso
3) 6.1-RELEASE-i386-disc2.iso

I'm gathering that I need to extract files/data/etc. from the ISO files. What utility do I use?

Do I need a separate cd as boot media with information extracted from the first file above? Do I need to just copy the boot image on to a floppy and just have it install the remainder of the files. The cd drive that I have on the machine I'm planning to install linux is not cdrom burner. So if a solution is to use something like dd to extract information and then copy back to the cdrom, I may not be able to do it.

I already have an old version of (I believe) RedHat. Can I just run sysinstall off the floppy which will in turn access the cdrom drive in order to install the remainder of files? If so where can I get sysinstall from?

Bottom line, I'm stuck with these iso files and no apparent install media. Any guidelines would be appreciated.
