Hi, I am new to Linux and am having a bit of trouble installing Red Hat 6 to my laptop. Red Hat was recommended to me by a friend of mine, as being 'not too hard to learn on.'
I guess information is probably helpful:
The computer is an HP Pavillion N3550 running win98, and I am attempting to get it to dual boot with Red Hat 6. I have so far defragmented my hard drive, and run FIPS to partition it into 3 pieces. At this point I am trying to install Red Hat.
I downloaded and burned the necessary Red Hat cds, and tested them in my primary pc (running win XP) and they loaded right up and asked me to install. I place them into the HP and set the bios to load from CD, but it is to no avail. Win 98 boots right up. In desperation, I tried using a win 98 startup disk to interrupt win 98s load, but it won't let me access the Red Hat CD.
I guess my question centers around finding advice on how to red the red hat cds to load. Perhaps there is a loading utility for floppy, or I should be attempting another method? Maybe Red Hat isn't the way for me to go. I'm not sure, and so any advice would be most appreciated. I thank everyone for their time and kind attention.
