Description of problem:
should have an installer option to install red hat linux onto separate 
hard disk (if detected).  most people trying out linux wants to do this 
for a start; even if we wanted to throw away windoze 98 right away, we 
need to migrate to it, so we need two operating systems.  Some people 
would rather install a second operating system onto a separate hard disk 
(i want to) and leave the original o/s alone.

In Red Hat 7.2 you can have the installer automatically partition for you and
also tell it to only use a particular drive.  This should address the issue
brought up here.
