redhat installation


I have windows xp on my laptop. I have total of three partitions on HDD. I am trying to install RedHat Enterprise edition on one partition of my system. However, I am getting error message when setup asks for partition for installation of RedHat. The error message is something like "You have not specified (/) root". I do not find any way of specifying root. Can any one help me?

When you get to the partitioning section, choose to edit the partition you want to use for Redhat and then make sure its mount point is set to /.
