I am running WinXP and due to a college project I want to install Redhat linux 6.2 as this is the one we are going to be using.
I downloaded the ISO file from the redhat site and burned it to disk, the problem is I cannot get it to install, it will not boot from the CD and when I make a boot up disk on floppy and try and boot from that it gets as far as 'searching for boot from floppy...ok' then it hangs and goes no further.
I have made the floppy more than once to eliminate the chance that the floppy is corrupted in some way but I get the same result.
Thanks for all your replies. I had trouble finding redhat 6.2 to download and the site I found only had the one ISO file to download but after looking at other versions they all seem to have more than ISO file so maybe I did'nt get it all.
Anyway although it is 6.2 we are going to be installing at college I decided to buy the latest version 9 it cost me £6+£1 postage. I will let you know how I get on when it is deliverd and I am sure that I will be back for more advice.
Woodchip is it 9 you have installed if so I will be bending your ear lots when I get my copy lol.
