Oops worked that out. The "controller failed" error was due to the disk being full. Anywayz i've managed to install RH 7.2 and the process was a glide. Pretty impressive interface they ahve there.
But since i've working on a limited HD space - I have reserved 2.5 GB for linux, out of which 800 MB is allotted for swap[I have 512 ram]...........could you guys please tell me which applets/utilites take up necessary space and deserve to be booted. BTW i prefer using Gnome!
Quick respose would be appreciated!
