It would help greatly if you post your errors so that we can help diagnose.

Also, How are you installing from a CD or a floppy. What type of PC is it?

Any info you can post would help greatly.

Thanks for the replies..

I removed all partitions, beacuse it was saying you should choose a root partition! I didn't know how to choose!
After that I just began to install it for my pc from CD. It's Red hat version 7.3. It said that a file(it selected the path also) can not be opened!! I do not remember exactly what was the error! But I couldn't even cancel the installation!

Can you help me please?Smilie I'm very interested in Unix and I like to have it on my pc as soon as possible to make a good networking in my office.

How could I choose a root partition?!Smilie (/) ??!!

If I can have it with windows at the same time, I can start to install it again to see the exact error and tell you! Does it require a format or not?!

Now I'm using Windows XP professional.

Also I decided to make a new partition, then it said " Could not allocate request partitions. Partitioning failed!"

when I choose a mount point it saiys:
" This mount point must be on a linux filesystem!"
