Winlinux 2003 problem please help!

I downloaded Winlinux 2003 just recently and can't seem to find a solution to the problem I'm having. I'm a complete newbie when it comes to this sort of stuff. It comes to a message that says "Setting up winlinux partitions" then the system stalls. I can't seem to figure out what the problem is. What do I do? Any help would be apreciated!

Most likely problem from your system specs, taken direct from WinLinux website...

Problem:"WINLINUX does not yet support WinXP, 2000, 2003...
Solution: Don't Install WinLinux if you have WinXP, 2000, 2003

Actual and more pressing problem...
Your an honest ta goodness noob who's actually trying to install the "Crap-Oh-The-Month" distro...
Solution: Go get a real distro that actually has a forum here instead of trying to install this crap...
