Installation problem on RHEL4 WorkStation

I tried to install Redhat Enterprise Linux 4 Workstation by cd's with 15 GB free space in my pc. When I select a type of partion like 'Manually partition with disk druid" and cliked NEXT button, it was displayed a warning message as below,

Warning: An error has occured- no valid devices were found on which to create new filesystems. Please check your hardware for the cause of this problem.

(Note:But my system is working with good condition with Windows XP operating is working normally. I think the problem is only on installation)

Seagate Hard disk - 80 GB SATA
Mercury System Board
Available OS- Windows XP
Memory - 512MB

Please help me.......

Do you have 15Gb of free space on an existing Windows partition, or do you have 15Gb on un-used disk - i.e. where no partitions currently exist? You need to have un-used disk so the RHEL install can create Linux partitions for you.
