    If you mean an empty file you can use the dd command like this

    dd /tmp/empfile bs=1000 count=2000

    Red Hat wha!! 7.3 ? Thats Outdated! Most Probably that OS is using ext2 Type File System..

    ext3 Supports large Files..

    Get yourself a Nice New Distro.. Like Fedora Core (Formerly called _just_ Red Hat)

    And Dont Go For Enterprise Linux.. They're Meant only for Enterprises and Lack Community Support..
