Hi all,
I need some help,
I want to install linux but iam not sure how to approach it. If i use the

system then boot that and install linux? if there is another way could
someone help me!

1. Redhat 6.1 install and freeze after package install

I am trying to install Redhat 6.1 on a 133Mhz Pentium w/ 64 megs of RAM.  I
am able to boot up the kernel from the latest boot.img on a floppy and get
through the graphical install until the RPM packages are finishing
installing.  At this point the machine simply freezes up on me.  I
configured X windows with a "generic monitor" and Redhat was able to
recognize my video card and VRAM size.  I have tried to reinstall about six
times now with different options enabled (including changing my mouse
settings from generic serial to Microsoft 2.A serial) but I am still getting
the same system freeze.  Does anyone have any advice they can give me?  It
would be really appreciated.

Thanks in advance,
