Simpler Navigation coming for Servers and Operating Systems
Coming soon: a much simpler Servers and Operating Systems section of the Community. We will combine many of the older boards, and you won't have to click through so many levels to get at the information you need. If you are looking for an older board and do not find it, check the consolidated boards, as the posts are still there.

redhat 8.0 install

The install hangs either when transferring the image to the hard drive before installation or during the installation. I have also tried installing the bare minimum but the system hangs every time. Is this a known problem?

I am trying to install on an AMD 400Mhz cpu with 100Mb ram and 3Gb hard drive.

Thanks in advance,

Trystan.

Re: redhat 8.0 install

1.Verify that your md5sum of the iso is the same as the md5sum from redhat's site.

2. Reburn the ISOs and try the installation again.

3. Try burning another CDs and try the installation again.

I have already used these cd's to install another system and they worked fine.
Thanks,

Try installing with:

At the boot prompt:
linux ide=nodma
or
linux ide0=ata66
