I have two hardrives installed on in my computer. They are both ATA66 drives. The primary drive has windows installed and the secondary drive has no partitions as I have just reset the MBR.

On booting up from the Redhat 6.0 cd, evrything works fine up to the point where i select the "nO" option for the question "Do you have any SCSI adapters?"

After this step an error message pops up stating that no filesystems where found to install linux on.

I am happy to use the entire second drive for linux.

Can anyone help?

What do you mean "reset the MBR"?

Try booting to Windows and running FDISK on the second harddrive. Delete any partitions. Reboot and proceed with the Linux install.
