Unhappy Red hat Install: "No valid devices found on which to create new file systems"

I bought a book that came with Red Hat 7.0. As you may know, this distributation comes with kernal version 2.4. I went on to install in GUI mode, and I got to the screen where you select an installation class. Now, I have a hard disk formated with the second extended (ext2) fs, and a swap partition. Whenever I select an installation class, I get the error message "No Valid devices found on witch to create new files systems. Check your hardware for the cause of this problem." The computer then reboots. I have also tried to install the OS with an unpartitioned disk, and I have also wrote zeros to my hard disk. The results are always the same.
