Okay, here's the dilemma. I've got a now clean 6GB hard drive that's being converted from Win98 SE. I first tried to set it up as a dual boot system but, I couldn't get Red Hat 9 to boot properly.
So, I used a program called PC-Inspector E-MAXX to wipe the hard drive and install RH9 as the only OS. After the install seemed to work properly, I get the same error message upon boot.
The GRUB loader is apparently working properly, as Win98 worked when it was installed, but RH9 just plain dies when it tries to boot. Here are the last few lines of text that appear on the screen before it quits.
