Red Hat Installation

Post by Steve Bajad » Thu, 05 Dec 1996 04:00:00

        I have been trying to install Red Hat from the CD  and get stuck at the
point of when it asks if you want to use local time or GMT time. I click
local time and it just hangs. I then have to reboot from the floppy to get
out of it.


1. Pleae help!! Red Hat installation problem.

I'm sort of a newbie to Linux, though I've used DOS, UNIX, and Mac's
extensively. I recently bought Red Hat Linux Unleashed from SAMS, and tried to
install from the included Red Hat CD. (version 3.0.3)
        I used Partition Magic to make two
unformatted partitions, one for the primary file-system, the other for the
swap. I then used fdisk within the Red Hat installation to make the partitions
83 and 82, respectively. All the packages etc, installed fine, and I configured
LILO to boot Linux or DOS. However, when I rebooted, it gave an invalid
partition table, and woulddn't boot at all. I had to use a DOS boot-up disk and
delete the Linux partitions.
        Here's my setup:
                Intel Pentium-75 processor
                24 MB RAM
                810 MB Hard drive
                        about 600 for main DOS/win95 partition
                        about 70 for main Linux partition
                        about 8 for linux swap
                        a few more DOS partitions
                Partitions made using Partition Magic.
        If anybody could help me with this, it would be much appreciated.

Thank you very much,
