I have no idea whats wrong

So from begining -
First I install Berry (red hat based) linux on my old computer. I just ran instaler, input some options, usr name, pass and instaler automaticly instaled linux on computer.
Now I'm trying install THE SAME DISTRO FROM THE SAME CD. I ran instaler and instead of asking install options it shows only some text named "Usage for Xdialog". It is the same text if u type Xdialog in terminal.
Anyone have idea whats wrong? Me, my computer or some mystic powers?

ps: my distro is Berry (red hat based) linux

Could be that the installation script contains wrong syntax for Xdialog command. If you execute Xdialog with wrong syntax/parameters (ie no parameters at all), it can print a standard help message that explains Xdialog's proper usage.

What is the name of the installer? Is it a shell script? Can you find an Xdialog command inside?
