Installation terminates after failure to install e2fsprogs-1.27-9


I just inherited three Dell computers and a copy of Red Hat(RH) Linux 7.2. I was trying to install RH on one computer and suddenly it terminated and displayed this error message. "Installation terminates after failure to install e2fsprogs-1.27-9" It then says that this is critical and the computer reboots. The message indicates that this may be a failure of the hardware.

I am very new and any help or suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks

Next month Redhat 7.2 will be 10 years old. And hasn't had any updates for most of that period. Don't use it.
The consumer Redhat evolved into Fedora - Fedora 15 being the current release; I suggest you download that and burn it (as an image) to a CD/DVD. You can use the link on the upper right to download.

See if that likes your (hopefully reasonably new) hardware better.
