Well, it would seem that I'm one of the few people that actually got Red Hat 7.2 to install properly. And after much effort (and some help) I got it to dual boot with Windows XP by using GRUB.
However, Red Hat setup doesn't let you choose which filesystems are supported in your kernel and so I wanted to recompile my kernel to support NTFS and FAT partitions so I could listen to my mp3's while running Linux. So I downloaded kernel sources and walked myself through installing the sources and recompiling the kernel (a huge achievement since I'm a complete newbie). I added an entry for the new kernel in GRUB and booted into it but while booting there were a couple error messages that showed up. There was an error in "depmod" and "modprobe" and they had to do with being unable to locate
Or something in that directory. What could have went wrong in my installation to cause this? Any suggestions would be appreciated.
