    help with installation

    I can't get off the ground. I'm trying to install redhat6.1 and I end up with an error that begins:

    Traceback (innermost last):
    File "/usr/bin/anaconda",line225 in? (todo,test,=test
    "../../../ RedHat/instimage.....

    and on and on.

    Any ideas about how I've gone wrong?

    Hiya Ed,

    Welcome Aboard!


    There are a few things floating around that *may* becausing the problem:

    1) Are you using an AMD atholon Processor? You will need *at least* RH 6.2 aparently.

    2) Are you trying to mount any windows drives when installing? this may be causing some grief.

    Do either of the above apply? or no?

    As a personal recommendation, i would go with RH 8 if possible, 6.1 is fairly old, and if your new to linux, you will appriciate the "Smoothness" of RH 8 over 6.1 IMO.

    sorry... I had to go out and do my Sunday run

    I have a Pentium, and I have a fresh clean 2nd hard drive.

    I am not stupid, and I am working out of a book 'Teach Yourself Linux' with a disk to boot from.

    Well , maybe I am stupid. What should I do?
