Description of problem:
I receive this error message everytime i try to install rh70. Im kindof a 
newby in linux so i dont know what this means but i have tried getting a 
new antivirus but no. I think i should just give up and get mandrake or 
slackware, else i will continue with windows.
I have downloaded rh70 both isos and got them on a cd, I hope that helps
Anyways is there anything i can try that doesnt require me to be a guru in 
linux? or is it just the stupid redhat?

Were you doing a partitionless install?  (Assigning / to a FAT Filesystem)

Comment 3 Need Real Name 2001-09-06 21:54:49 UTC
That doesnt matter. I tried to do a partitionless install and it showed me the 
error message. I tried to install on a formated disk (both were win95/dos 
partitions) and the same message. I trid to do it in spanish and then in 
english and the same thing.
