install redhat 7.1

I'm 55 years old so please be gentle. I have a pentium 133 that I want to use just for redhat 7.1. I found several sets of instructions on the web to do this but it seems like there all for duel boot. Does anyone know where I can find install instructions that are for just one OS? I'm fairly literate in MS.

Just drop the RedHat cd in and boot from it. Then chose to manually partion with disk druid. There you can simply erase any fat partitions and use the ext2 partions in their place. Redhat's site explains.

just also to let you know, on a 133 if you plan on using the GUI like KDE or GNOME.. it will be slow.. but should do just fine with everything else..

you can also let if manually partition if you want a desktop install, or server.. etc..
