    Pen-IV
    When I try to install Red Hat linux-Version 9, it gives a message that your computer's Architecture does't support to install Red Hat Linux.
    Help me.

    Hey me 2...

    DO THIS AFTER CHECKING FOR HARDWARE
    **************************************
    I have the same config but I have it installed.
    Create a partition in ext2 for 5 gb or so and then
    create a swap partition using partition magic or
    any other disk management software. Now Boot from CD
    using the linux boot cd(cd no 1) Press f1 in the boot-up screen
    Skip media test, then go on to manually partition using disk druid ,
    To create a mount point use "/" after clicking on hda X and then press edit (here X is a no)Now the partition will be formatted in ext2 format
    and after the rpm transaction is over the install image will be transferred to your hard drive.
    Finally red hat linux will be installed i uer system.. 8)

    Correct me if only I am wrong

    Install something better than RH9. Its too old now. A few versions have come after that. FC3 (RH12) is expected soon. Or is it already out?

    If you want, I have a live distro based on RH9. You can check if that one works. If it does then may be your installation CDs have errors.

    Redhat 9 is well over a year old, it may not have the drivers for your Mercury motherboard, that's why it isn't installing.

    better try to install Knoppix (if you're a beginner) or Fedora Core 3 (if you're used to Linux).

    The September 2004 di9it dvd has the Knoppix distro.
    burn the iso file onto a disc.

    next, boot from that cd and install Knoppix.
