I want to install Red Hat Linux 9.0 on my machine. I had a friend download it for me and burn it on a CD (he also installed it on a machine he has). I was talking to him on how to install it and he told me that he ran into a problem during the installation with a problem with the Master Boot Record. He said he fixed it with FDISK. I wanted to know the details of this problem and how to fix it before I even try to install Red Hat.
