I was trying to istall Linux 7 deluxe workstation and i currently have 
windows me installed.  i restarted my computer with the cd inserted and 
began the instalation.  when i went thought some of the questions i ended 
up with it telling me there was an error and to save it to disk and go to 
buzilla.redhat.com so here i am and have no clue where to go but i will 
copy the texted that was saved to the disk into here for you to see and 
help me.  I would like to have partitions because of the non-compatibilty 
with many programs currently... if you have any clue with how to fix this
