I tried installing it and I got two error messages saying:

Error message one


Error Partioning
Could not allocate requested partions:
Patrioning Failed:Could not allocated partions as
Primary partitions



Error message two


Automatic Partitioning Errors
The following errors occured with your partitions

You have not defined a root partition (/), which is required for installation of Red Hat Linux to continue.

This can happen if there is not enough space on your hard drive(s) for the installation. You can choose a different automatic partitioning option, or click 'Back' to select manual partitioning.





I right clicked my C drive and clicked properties and I have 6GB of memory left which im sure is more than enough for the system to run on which I assume would cancel out the "This can happen if there is not enough space on your hard drive(s) for the installation" option.

I went back to the manual root selection and got a little confused.

Anyone able to help?

Well Im not very experienced with red hat, but it looks like you didnt specify a root partition (the main partition).

If you did, then I suggest just downloading Fedora Core, or a newer version of red hat. :tazz:

Here, try following this step by step:

Are you using disk druid to automatically partition? If not, you may want to try.
