What do you mean 'compatibility issue' ?
You need to run some old programs on this server ?

With special thanks for your reply , I downloaded the iso images and burned CD . But when I try to install Linux 7.2 in text mode , it will show the following lines on my display and then waits indefinitely :
"boot: text
Loading initrd.img
Loading vmlinuz ....ready
Uncomressing Linux .. Ok, booting the kernel.
"
It will wait here indefinitely . Can you please do me favor and let me know why the installation does not progress on my pc ?
Regards

Your hardware might be to modern? It comes from the time of PII and early PIII computers and you definitely will have problems installing on modern hardware.

Sorry to forget to mention about this : "I had success in installing Linux 9 & CentOS 5 on this platform . Can you please do me favor and confirm if it still can come from my platform incompatibility issue or I need to search for its cause on other items ?"
Looking forward your reply

CentOS5 is a newer os and it would definitely wont be a problem to install it. RH9 is old too but still more than couple of years younger then RH7. So they could have the drivers for your machine.
Your issue could be related to display drivers.

I think RedHat 7.2 can't be installed on most (any ? ) not too ancient computers.
So you can install CentOS 5 (or anything else if you prefer it) and use it as host
for VMWare/Virtualbox/Qemu.
Inside one of the VM you can install Redhat 7.2 without too much difficult.

Thanks Valery Reznic, it might solve my worry about a RH6.2 server that we're still using (it only has to survive another 1.5 - 2 years).
