Red Hat 9 install bombs at the very end - Help!
Please bear with me, I am a noob and I am trying to set up a small server to learn Linux and use as a pre-production server for web development.
I have an old barebones box that I wanted to load Red Hat 9 onto. So I did the research on compatible hardware. My CPU is a K6-2 333Mhz, and my video card is an ATI Rage 128, and I have 256M ram and 20G HD and a generic 52X CDROM. No NIC (yet), no Modem, nothing extra. All of these items are on the RH compatibility chart.
I set my BIOS to boot from CD.
I am using a Publishers version of RH9 on CD included with a book. When I fire up my PC it reads the CD and asks which type of install procedure, text or graphics. I chose graphics.
I seem to get all the way through the install questions to the point where it is loading files and I see the bargraph showing progress.
However, at the very end I get a fatal error stating that I am: "Trying to install on a machine that is not compatible."
As far as I could tell, I thought I was compatible. Are there any suggestions that may help me out of the starting block? Thank you in advance.
