    Are you saying Red Hat is not detecting the drive? You said Red Hat was not detecting a partition you deleted? does it show as unallocated space. How are you trying to install? Are you booting from CD/DVD drive to install? Do you get any error messages?

    Hi,

    Yes while installation their is an option come:-
    1) Do you want to link drive Automatically.
    2) Do you want to link drive Manually.

    I have selected both option but it says Can't find the drive.

    While Installing through CD, Red Hat LINUX is not detecting the drive.

    It only says Can't find the drive where to install the Linux.

    RHEL 5 is the latest, it should have no problems detecting hard disks. This is a good question for the paid support you got with it .

    If you are looking for distro's you can check this site distrowatch.com

    Almost, all distro like Debian,Fedora,Ubuntu provides free ISO to download and you can burn it to DVD/CD.

    Else google "linux magazine" to get list of magazine,all most magazine comes with Linux CD/DVD everymonth.

    If it is so urgent, then I suggest you use your paid support rather than demand it from the community.

    Hi,

    Just like to inform you that can be a hardware problem.

    I have the SATA harddisk with 4 Partitions and Windws XP installed in it.

    At the time of installing the Windows and creating partitions the extension would be NTFS so that windows can be installed however i think to install LINUX we require the FAT partition.

    Can this be possible due to Extension error, LINUX in not detecting the partition which i have deleted from Windows.

    Regards

    Sumit
