More information...

What is the motherboard or laptop model you hare having trouble with?

If you are using RedHat 9, an old version, and a new system, you might not be able to install linux. You probably need a newer linux.

The current RedHat products are RHEL 6 with payment for support, or its clone CentOS, without a fee, or Fedora 14. Try downloading a copy of a Fedora live-cd to see if you have more luck, or any try another live-cd.

Hello

Thank you your reply. My system is one year old machine. My mother board is American mega trends.

I want to install Redhat Linux and on the top of that i want to install Oracle for real time environment and pratice.

My system model is ASPIRE M3202. When I check in Acer website, they have two different BIOS of Windows and Linux & Dos, If I load Linux Bios did my windows vista os will work with out any problem.

Once again Thank you.

I think thorkelljarl is correct. Your problems may be a result of trying to use an old version of Linux on a new machine. Try installing a new version.

I would not install a BIOS for Linux. I doubt that this will help you and it may cause problems for Vista.

I think that thorkelljarl is correct. Your problem may be caused by trying to install an old version of Linux.

I would advise against installing a BIOS specifically designed for Linux. I doubt that this will help.

Not a good idea...

Unless you have some other reason for updating your BIOS, it is doubtful that updating will help you with your linux problem, and if you don't know what you're doing and do it wrong, will disable your system all but permanently, known as to "brick".

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brick_%28electronics%29

It sounds to me that you're are a candidate for CentOS. CentOS is the same as RedHat Enterprise Linux and does not have the paid support that comes with RHEL, but has a good support community instead. CentOS is a literal copy, a clone, in all ways the same as RedHat Enterprise. If Oracle works with RHEL, it should work with CentOS. You might take a look at it.

http://www.centos.org/

The reason that your new system does not work with an old version of linux is that the linux kernel in the old version does not include the kernel module drivers that are needed for the newer chips on your system hardware to function correctly.
