I bought 20 GB hard disk, and REPLACED the orignal 4 GB with it. I used Win98 Start up Disk to create 1 primary partition, and 1 extended partition of equal sizes:
Now, the problem is that I 'm bad at hardware stuff; I dont know how to format those FAT disks from command-line.
Secondly, I booted the RH7.1 install from the CD, and, choosing custom installation, ran Disk DRUID.
I created the following (sizes stated roughly):
/boot - 32 mb
<not set> 5 gb [dos partion]
/usr 6 gb
/home 6 gb
/ 1.2 gb
/var 400 mb
<swap> 256 [swap partition]
The PROBLEM is that the installation program sometimes goes as far as the package selection screens, then gets stuck; or goes as far as the Language selection screen and gets stuck.
The last time I installed RH7.1 with win 2k, I had no linux problems [that time I choose server intstallation; and lost all win 2k: this time, I want rh7.1 and win98 together]
Why is linux installation getting stuck (it gave a kernel error last time) ?
Hope somebedy can help me,
