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.

Comment 4 Michael Fulbright 2001-03-21 19:38:56 UTC
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?

Comment 5 john 2001-03-21 22:42:53 UTC
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.

Comment 6 john 2001-03-21 23:19:20 UTC
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.

Comment 7 Michael Fulbright 2001-03-22 16:08:47 UTC
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.
