installing redhat 3 desktop


Hi!
Good day evryone!
This is my first ever linux expedition.
I downloaded RHED3 recently.They are all fine as the MD5sum says.
Since I dont have CD Burner, I prefer to use hard drive installation.
My problem is that, the installation wont start the graphic installtion. It will go to text installation.
Since im pretty new to this thing, im not sure what im doing.
I tried to run in text mode and I only reach up to disk partitioning and not any futher.
Any assistance is highly appreciated.

Thank you very much.

just a thought, are you formatting the partition the iso's are on?

as for the graphical installer, do you have enough ram to run it?

maybe be a bit more specific with the system specs and hardware configuration..thanks

Thank you very much for the reply.

No. the partation im trying to format is diffrent from where the ISOs are located.
About the RAM, I have 512mb loaded.

My PC is IBM Thinkcentre-A30. 2.8GHz 512Mb memory. Im currently running Windows XP pro. I want to dual boot it.
The partation im trying to repartation for RHED3 is curently FAT32 with 8G space.

Thank you very much.

Thats plenty of ram for the gui, and linux should be able to format your fat partition just fine. Hmm, any way u can get a friend to burn your ISO's for ya, I don't have any insight as to why it wouldn't work from the hd but it seems that that's most likely the problem. As for the gui, does anaconda recognize the video card? If so does it recognize it as the correct card. Hopefully someone else will come along and know of a common problem or something. Sorry this prolly isn't much help.

Hi!
I read carefully the lines before the welcome screen. It says that GUI is not available for HD installation. It was a pain for me. but I manage to install it after several tries.
My next problem is the networking. I need to join a workgroup of computers which comprises of win2ks and Xps. I can ping all of them but dont know to access thier shared files and printers.

This gonna be a long way for me.
I appraciate much if you lend a hand for me.

Thank you very much.
