Want to install RedHat Linux 4ES X86-64

I'm a newbie to Linux.
I have a PentiumIII, 750Mhz clone at home. It's got about 10g after I formatted drive C:.
I want to install RedHat Linux 4ES X86-64 (4 CD's) on it.

Does my P3 750 have the juice to run it?
Assuming this is true, where can I obtain install instructions?
Is there a GUI that i can use with this? Or is it all command line console?

I believe you should have enough power to run 4ES.
I found Installation Instructions for 3ES on Redhat's site a while back, I would start looking there. The installation was pretty simple and was all graphical based, didn't use the instructions except to help get past a sticky spot in installing it on a Virtual server. The only trick was that when it asked for disk 3 you had to try to continue without the disk in then actually put the disk in and continue or it would fail to read some file.
You'll find that ES has a GUI front end, or you can lock it down and go with command line.

Good Luck.

Thanks for the reply.

During the install, does it prompt or allow you to
setup the disc as a raw partition?

I don't believe so, but it has been a while since I did it and when I did it, it was on a virtual machine.

It's pretty much a standard Red Hat install.
