We need more information.

What Linux distribution are you attempting to install?
Do you have any special circumstances? (dual booting with another OS?)

What 3 CD's do you have?

Slap Redhat Disk one in your CD-ROM.
Restart the computer,
Hit Del to enter setup,
and change your bios so it boots from CD-ROM.
Save and exit.

ok ?

you have free space yes, but the problem is that your free space is formatted in what I assume to be windows partitions. you need to create free space that is not a part of any partition. There are several programs that can help you do this. their names escape me at the moment, hopefully the next person will be able to recall them
