I repartitioned and formatted with a competing (older) linux version, waiting for rh7.  I chose not to re-format, since the partitions (2 ext2 and 1 
swap) should have been empty.  After the screen saying that it was my last chance to exit - it was going to over-write everything by installing, it 
crashed.  I tried again, formatting all 3 linux partitions, and had NO problems.

Cyrix M2-300, 128MB, i439TX/371AB chipset
hard disks: 8.4GB IDE primary master, hda, partitions: 2G hda1 type ext2; remainder, hda2, type FAT32
                 520MB pri slave, hdb, partitions: 130M swap, remainder is ext
boot method: CDROM
linux started with mem=128M

Here is the text it said to post:
