Redhar 6.2 on Dell Inspiron 8200

During installation, I get the following error msgs when loading Redhat 6.2 onto the Dell 8200. It occurs just before I am getting ready to select the packages for installation (when the installation is reading the package information). A
"Exception Occurred" window comes up that says:

Traceback (innermost last):
File "/usr/bin/anaconda", line 342, in ? n(todo, test=test)
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/") Line 1165, in run Rc = apply(step[1](),
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/textw/", Line 11, in __call__
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/", line 467 In getCompsList Self.comps =
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/",Line 8, in readComps
Return ComponentSet (self.tree +'/RedHat/base/comps', hdlist)
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/",Line 326, in __init__
Self.readCompsFile(file, Self.packages)
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/", line 299, in readCompsFile
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/", Line 46, in __getitem__ Return
KeyError: basesystem

Can anybody help?

There is nothing called Linux 6.2, when referring to Linux distributions always include their names and then version numbers. Anyway I assue you meant Redhat 6.2. Redhat 9 and below were discontinued by Redhat, and replaced by Fedora Core and Redhat Enterprise Linux.
