Comment 3 john 2001-03-19 23:42:41 EST
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 14:38:56 EST
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 17:42:53 EST
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 18:19:20 EST
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 11:08:47 EST
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.
