I cannot get RH 5.2 to install using any of the following:
1. the supplied boot disk
2. the cdrom from RH
3. the boot disk I made using rawrite.
I have the following hardware:
1.CTX 233 AMD K6-233 with 64 meg ram/24 speed Torisan CD-ROM(preinstalled)
2.Maxtor HD's/master=7.0 gig/slave=4.0 gig
3.Windows 98 SE upgrade
4. Partition Magic 4.0/PowerQuest BootMagic
I can handle installing Internet connections,my video card,my soundcard,
and my external modem.
No matter if I partion using PM and set up BM or if I use FIPS(supplied
with CDROM) to set my Linux partitons and then boot off my CDROM or either
boot floppies,the preliminary install starts; then a series of messages
flash too fast to pause or read and then the whole process starts again.
I have used System Commander in the past but quit after it crashed while
I ran a Win95 NT 4.0 dual boot. I have reformatted my HD and even low level
reformatted since then. My bios won't let me use my slave as an active
I know my RH boot disks and my RH CDROM is ok because RH will start to
install on my stepson's Compaq 120 pentium with a 600 mg HD. Please email
