- in vmware i have set the guest operating system as, Redhat, Other linux, other linux 2.6 kernel. Redhat enterprise linux 4.
- I have an IDE and SCSI hard drive. I have tried installing CentOS on both of these via VMware.
- i have tried to Boot via IDE and SCSI in VMware on both hard drives.
- installing Redhat 9 still outputs same error.
- installing via text mode
my guest would be that the BIOS version needs updating or a new driver needs installing. But it's only a guess.
I'd appreciate it if someone could point me in the right direction, been tring to figure this out or a couple of days now and not gettig very far. My knowledge in linux is still in it's early stages.

Have you checked the integrity of the image? The image may be corrupt. Check the MD5SUM against the image you downloaded.
