    Most likely a hardware problem. Any more details?
    Error messages?

    the system does not shutdown gracefully i.e. it just shuts off as though someone removed the power cable.

    after that when i try to start it using the power button it does not for a few minutes.

    the instalation reaches about halfway when installing the packages

    it is an assembled PC.installed from a CD.its not a retail version.

    thanx

    Why? Redhat 9 is very old. Is there a particular reason you're not trying to install something newer such as Fedora Core 5 or CentOS 4.3?

    Is your system connected to a UPS(battery back up)?
    It might be the problem

    no particular resaon to install redhat 9.0

    but i would like to figure out what this problem is.

    the system works fine running windows xp.so i dont think it is a hardware fault.
