    Help


    Ok...I'm trying to install Red Hat 7.3 on a Compaq Proliant 1500. But when I start the install it says that I don't have enough RAM to install Red Hat...which is odd because I have 192 megs of it!!!

    I've tried installing from a floppy and from the CDROM using autoboot.bat, but I keep getting the same error. Any help would be really apreciated

    at which stage does it throw the error message? when you create the partitions or at the beginning? i had a problem with redhat7.3 when it just did not accept the partition size that I gave in, when it allocated size on its own it the installation worked fine, but when I tried to customize the sizes then it failed.
    on a diff note, whey dont you try redhat 9? or do you have any specific reason for trying 7.3?

    I guess I could try and re do the partions. I didn't do a fdisk. I'm using 7.3 because that is the version that my Co-Op supervisor gave me...I really don't care what version it is...I'm a complete linux noob, I just want to learn

    try redhat 9 or fedora core 1 (mad eby redhat but has soem slight differences)

    newer version of things are almsot always the answer, if u get stuck with anyhting else, update it and see if that fixes it.
