Unhappy Red Hat Linux Installation Failed


I was installing Linux RH on my PC and about 80% of installation was complete when the electricity went off and installation failed. Now I cannot recover the lost space where RH Linux was installed partially. How to recover that area of Hard Drive? Plz help!

Spell your words out.

And the way you 'recover', is to restart the installation. Format the drive again, and off you go.

gargee_1234 then once you have rhel5.5 installed PAY Red Hat for a license and update it

RHEL5 is NOT FREE
? yes free to install BUT NOT FREE to install security updates or any other programs other than what is there

if you DO NOT INTEND on buying a mandatory license then DO NOT INSTALL RHEL 5

install CentOS 5.5 instead
