I,m trying to install Rh 7.3 in a machine I have at home. This mashine has 256ram a cdrom and a quatum fireball 13g hd.
The install begins but stop at the screen where its listing the hardware in the machine. It stop at.
then it just sits there all night if I let it.
Any Idea whats going on, anyone?
Yes the hd is formated. One thing I didn't metioned is that I started off with a clean HD Patitioned it to one partition and loaded win 98. Then I used fips to repartition and creaded a 10g partition. eather way I try the install weather I use the whole hd for RH or if I try to install to particular partition it still gets me to the same point. I don't know what is up.

Linux seems to like it when the boot partition is the MASTER (when using EIDI). I suggest checking your setup and making sure that your hard disks are properly jumpered for MASTER/SLAVE configuration (as hinted above) AND insure that your linux boot partition is the MASTER.
