Installation Problem


I recently got the Red Hat Linux 9 cd(s) from a friend. I insterted disk 1 and went through all the steps until I got to the actual installation. After about 5 minutes after starting the installation of packages a message pops up that says: "An error occured transfering the install image to your hard drive. You are probably out of disk space." It then goes back a page. I tried it a few more times and it did the same thing. Please help.

Well, for one thing, are you out of hard drive space? how did you partition the drive you are attempting to install to? What other information can you give us?

So how much space is there for Redhat?
http://www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/l...titioning.html

Did you select "Keep existing partitions and install in free space"?

Are you setting this up a dual boot. How big is the drive? etc....

I selected the "delete all other partions" bullet in the partion section. I have an 80GB hard drive, I dont know how that could not be enough space....
