Newby install

Hello Iam not only new to linux but to forums as well! Ihave win xp pro on raid 0 2 sata drives. i have installed a new ide drive for linux redhat 7.3( i have a pack of cds + 1 dvd) i installed linux ok, said all done. At reboot,starts to load says welcome to linux in red text goes through 11 stages which it answers OK to, the last 2 being loading usb then the machine locks. Tried re install gets to same point and locks again. Any suggestions!?

Thanks in anticipation! Bob
