Your friend has a FAT-32 partition. I'd suggest either installing Red Hat
5.1 rather than 5.0, or using a kernel (patched 2.0.x, 2.0.34, or 2.1.x)
that supports FAT-32. The patch for most 2.0.x-series kernels is

"UDF filesystem?" I've no idea what that is. Please say how you burned
that CD -- was it in Linux, some other Unix, a Mac, Windows, or something
else? What software did you use? Only three filesystems are in even
remotely common use on CD-ROMs today: ISO-9660, Joliet, and Mac HFS.
There are various "levels" of some of these, and Rock Ridge is a
(more-or-less) Unix-only extension to ISO-9660 that's in common use in the
Unix world (including Linux). Linux supports ISO-9660 (with or without
Rock Ridge) natively. Joliet support is available with the same patch
that provides FAT-32 support. Mac HFS support is available as a patch to
2.0.x-series kernels or natively in recent 2.1.x kernels. CDs with Joliet
but not ISO-9660 exist, but are rare, especially when burned by users.
Still, depending on the platform and software you used, it's possible you
created one of these. Similar comments apply to HFS CD-ROMs.
