Hi, Can you please specify the exact OS you are trying to install. Red Hat Linux is no longer in development and has had no security updates in a long time, replaced instead by RHEL(license fees) and Fedora(free to use).

please first read this.

Than collect appropriate information and extend your post, so that we know what you are really doing.

i was installing rhel4 and config of machine are:
ram 2gb
hdd 250gb(ATA)

if you are staying with RHEL
then use RHEL 5.4

rhel 4 might be to old for a dual core cpu

--- or ---
install the free version
CentOS 5.4

I would stick with what John VV has said, RHEL 4 is quite a few years old, I suspect it probably doesn't have all the drivers that your hardware requires. CentOS 5.4 might be your best bet.

hi system x
if you will stay with redhat system
as advise use fedora (the last version is 12) or centose
i recommend (if you use Linux for general purpose) ubuntu is a great for you
