I am a first time Linux user, installing rhel (redhat enterprise linux 2.1) myself on a server already having a windows partition (C: and D:).
After installing the Linux, I cannot boot it up normally. There are two choice in the menu, linux and linux-up, default is linux. I can boot it up with linux-up or usin a boot disk but NOT linux, I got frozen mid way thru.
PIIX4: IDE controller on PCI bus 00 dev f9

ide1: BM-DMA at 0x1808-0x180f, BIOS settings: hdc: DMA, hdd:pio
-- frozen here --
Anyone know the cause of it and can help me fix it?
I have removed all the Linux parition during the installation, and set up like the following:
dev/hda1 1 to 6, 47 mb, ext2, mount /boot, format
dev/hda3 7to 260, 1992 mb, swap, format
dev/hda4 261 to ..., .... mb, ext2, mount /, format
dev/hda2 ... to ..., ... mb, ntfs, not mounted, no format (D: in windows partition)
Boot loader installed on Master boot partition (default hda4). Using LILO.
Any help or suggestions is apperciated.
