welcome to LQ!!

Any of the top distros should be fine. Look at the "hit list" at http://distrowatch.com or the recent "member's choice" awards here at LQ. The "getting started" link below might help also.

With 64-bit hardware, you can use either the 32- or 64-bit versions of Linux. Stay with 32-bit unless you have a specific reason to use the 64-bit version.

"Redhat Linux" could mean Enterprise (costs $$) or Fedora (free). Either one should work fine.

Redhat v 9 and Fedora 4.1 doesn't work with my hardware.

It will get stuck before the GUI screen of installation.

Any other way to install, it would be good if i install Redhat Linux ?

Nope, they don't. Nor would Windows 95. Because they are very old and unsupported.
If you want Red Hat for free get CentOS, it's RH with branding removed. And get the latest version, not the oldest.

By 4.1 I assume that you mean Enterprise 4.1. This and Redhat 9 are both obsolete and do not support SATA.

If you want to use Redhat, then you need to get Fedora 8 or 9, or Enterprise 5. (You can also get CentOS which is a free clone of Enterprise) ...Did you ever look at Distrowatch or the member's choice awards?

You need to be more specfic with things like this--eg what error messages did get? What exactly were you doing when it got stuck?

You need to pick something and get started.

As I already told you, CentOS is a clone of RedHat Enterprise Linux. (Have you looked at their website?)

Also, I already stated that any of the top distros should support that hardware. ((Obviously ?) you should get a recent version)
