You could probably do that but since it only would take about 20 minutes for a full installation of RedHat 9.0 on most computers it is more trouble trying to find out which packets that didn't get installed.

Since the power went of you might have a packet only partitially installed.

May be With ur pc configuration the installation might take only 20 min
but it takes 2and 1/2 hours minimum for my pc configuration for installing all packages.
So,please suggest me some other way of doing it.

I know that there is a kickstartfile created at least after a succesful installation.
This file contain the answers to the questions you were presented with during installation.
But I don't think there is a easy way to continue a partitial installation.

What are your computer configuration. If an installation takes that long you might want another distribution. Red Hat 9.0 require some computer power.
