disk druid and fdisk problems


I am trying to install Red Hat Linux 6.0, when I get to the point where I need to partition I keep getting the same error. I am at the point where it asks whether I want to use disk druid or fdisk. Whichever I chose I get the same message, "No such file or directory"

that is strange, sounds like it might be a bad cd or something is missing. what mode are you in when installing, have you tried like expert mode or anything else besides the normal default install bootup?

I have been trying to install using expert mode. The CD is the one the came with the book Red Hat Linux 6 byArman Danesh. This info might be helpful too. I have a thirty gig drive partioned into a c: (Windows 4.8 gig ), d: (swap 900Mb) e: (music 8.09 gig), f: (data 8.09 gig), and g: (games 8.09 gig) and the rest approx 7 gigs is unpartioned. I have read in some post info about part of linux having to be installed before a certain point but nothing in this book has mentioned that so I was thinking that perhaps that is for older versions.
