Install problem repeat
I am installing from my hard drive to a PII 400 MHz computer with a
partitionless install. I've dowloaded all the updates for anaconda and every
other update. I made sure the install is less than 2047 MB as directed with a
FAT 32 hard drive.
There is currently a restriction that you cannot do a partitionless install to
the same partition you are using for a hard drive install source.
Is this your situation?
Yes, that is exactly what I am doing!!! Is there a way to install RedHat to
the same hard drive that it is downloaded to? Do I have to partition my
hardrive, and if I do so, do I lose all my data that is already there? Thanks.
It looks like the Automatic Partition selection should work, but will that
destroy any of my existing non-Linux data (i.e. all my stuff I collected under
Windows 98 over the past 3 years)? I currently have no Linux software on my
hard drive and it is a 12 GB single partition drive. Thanks in advance.
Do you have free space on your hard drive? If you windows partition(s) use the
entire disk you cannot add Linux partitions until you use a windows utility to
resize your partitions.
