just pop in your redhat9 cd and follow the instruction. but remember to use GRUB as bootloader and you'll be save on that..

and also, make sure your data is backed up and you have made a partition for redhat.

Before that, you need to do one more important thing....

Enter into your computer's BIOS setup and set the boot sequence with CDROM as the first option. So, it should be set to

CDROM, C(hard disk), A(floppy)

Save the new settings and exit from the BIOS setup. Once you do this, you will be able to boot from your RedHat 9 CD.

Just keep following the instructions as per the RedHat CD and you'll be through soon.

The slave drive probably already has a partition taking up all its free space. Make sure you delete all the partitions on that hard drive and try it again.

In that case you might try to selct the "manual partition" and if you know where it is on the Linux screen (as selecting the wrong one might lead to loss of data)
Select the partion you want to choose and click edit
Select format partion as.. and also set the root parameter..that should do ...at least that is wht i did

The easiest would be to delete the 2nd partition and select auto partition on free space.

This will create 3 partitions a /boot, / and a swap.

The 2nd easiest would be to again delete that 2nd partition.
create a swap partition of about 512mb
create a / with all the rest.

Use ext3 for filesystem type.

For install documentation go to Redhat's website.

RH default bootloader is grub. You can choose which OS to boot and you can also change which is the default OS to load.

To configure grub for the default OS you modify the /boot/grub/menu.lst file.
