still no luck
i tried using XFdrake, but it didn't have my graphic card listed, it chose for me intel 845 as my graphic controler. I checked out the device mangaer in windows to see what graphic card i had and the one i had was the intel 828456/gl/ge/pe/gv graphics controller. When i tested the configuration in XFdrake it said "error no screens found with configuration". I really need help.!!! does any one know what to do in this situation?

Of course you can install Red Hat. Just choose to manually configure partitions. That way you can keep your existing ones. Or you can choose automatic and have Red Hat do it for you. Then the installation will format the partitions and you will have a fresh install.
