thats really easy. Just burn the cd's and leave the space you want for linux in your hard disk unallocated. Boot using the first cd. Let the installation automatically partition your unallocated space. Installing Red Hat is really easy

Should I format the hard disk first with FAT32? Or just delete
all partitions and leave the disk unformatted?

Thanks.

better delete the partitions and leave the disk unformatted (unallocated).

I burned the 3 ISO files to disk and deleted all partitions on the hard drive... inserted the ISO disc #1 and she starts to boot but then hangs at a prompt for a boot diskette? Any ideas...

Thanks.

UPDATE: I just read a thread that states you shouldn't burn the ISO files as ISO files to disk?

Seems I have fallen victim to a very common mistake! Here is the answer to creating CDs from ISO files...

those are iso images.
You burn them like images , not files.
in nero u go to file->open
and you choose Image file in the filter of the open box.
I thought everybody knew that.

A disk Images is an 1 by 1 image of a disc.
When you burn them, u should see a file system in the disk( a lot of files and directories).
If you burn them like files u just see a .iso file in the cd.
If you did that, u just wasted 3 bank CD's.
(1 euro is not that much).
Maybe it's my fault. I should be more specific.
I''m using ISO images for 3-4 years and I thought everybody
knew the difference by now
