Red Hat 9 and New User failure!!
Hi All :) New to the forum and to Linux. I am/was attempting to install Rad Hat 9 from the isos I got at linuxiso.org. First I tried dual boot with Win XP Pro then Linux only. I did manage to basically duplicate the same issue when booting after install though, so I was consistent!!
I used the GUI interface to install since I am not experienced enough to do by code. Full install e.g. Custom, Select All.
After install and boot it basically goes to a shell with lots of lines:
(lots of lines of alpha/numeric stuff)
Code ff 50 10 eb d0 90 99 (keeps running 99 till end of line)
<0> Kernel panic Attempted to kill init!
CPU = Cereron 2.7
RAM = 384
drive = WD1200JB
After 1st attempt it wouldn't boot to XP Pro either, not even in safe mode. So I formated XP out and made the whole drive for Linux and still same result.
