When does this error come up?

I'm not familiar with the Red Hat install, however you should know that Red Hat has now been replaced by Fedora Core (on the personal desktop front)

So if you really intend to install Red Hat you should really look into Fedora Core.

Edit: Just looked at the Red Hat site, The last Red Hat version was basically ended in April 2004 when the last updates were released. I personally don't know if its running but I'm pretty sure everyone has migrated over to Fedora Core or Red Hat Enterprise.

Have you got scsi drives ? you might need to load a controller in to support them.

you can find more information here.

http://www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/linux/RHL-9-Manual/install-guide/

fedora core 3 is the latest version of redhat currently. Its 4cd download though so a broadband connection is a must if you want to download it from one of the mirrors.

I guess you have one hdd with 2 partitions on it how did you partition it I mean what did u use to partition hdd... is the non windows partition formated if yes with what filesystem.... i suggest u to partition your hdd with partition magic and that you put ext3 filesystem or format it later with red hat .....
