I am a new user to linux and i burned my fingers today while trying to install linux.
I have a P-II machine with a 20 GB HDD. i have installed windows in one partition which is 10GB, and tried to install linux in the other.
I tried to install Red Hat linux,and used a custom installation...........
I used disk druid to partition the hdd and i allocated an 8GB for /root ,1.5GB /hda the boot partition and 500MBto linux swap partition. - could this be the problem..
I have installed lilo in the MBR.After the installation
of the packages, during the post verification of the package installation, the system suddenly shows an error.
After that the installation continues smoothly to the end.
While rebooting instead of booting linux the system directly boots windows.At this stage i rebooted, using a
floppy to load linux using lilo, but the following error appears
Kindly help me and tell me how to rectify it.
