I tried for three hours to boot the new software (I just
paid $60 for it) and had zero success. The boot diskette
wouldn't boot. I tried to do so in many creative ways. The
cd-rom wouldn't boot. I couldn't even access my cd-rom from
dos. I didn't even want to try the expert boot. I really
don't consider myself an expert. Right now I consider myself
only frustrated.
My system runs Win98.
Could that make Linux unattainable?
Windows version 4.10.1998

If you haven't already seen the Red Hat Linux Installation Guide

The Red Hat Linux FAQ is also useful:


As is the Red Hat Linux User's FAQ and the Linux documentation project
(both of which are non-Red Hat projects):
