Well, since you don't say what verison/distro of Linux, installing onto what hardware, how can anyone help you?

You don't give us much to go on. Try giving us complete information, and telling us exactly what you've done to get to this point, and what you've tried already.

Give us more information. What distribution and version of Linux are you trying to install. Last I checked there were about 1,000 different ones. Do you have any other operating system on the computer and if so, what is it. Information on your hardware, how old is the computer, size of dirve, number of drives, processor type/size.
