Hi, Can you please specify the exact OS you are trying to install. Red Hat Linux is no longer in development and has had no security updates in a long time, replaced instead by RHEL(license fees) and Fedora(free to use).

if you are staying with RHEL
then use RHEL 5.4

rhel 4 might be to old for a dual core cpu

--- or ---
install the free version
CentOS 5.4

I would stick with what John VV has said, RHEL 4 is quite a few years old, I suspect it probably doesn't have all the drivers that your hardware requires. CentOS 5.4 might be your best bet.
