Description of problem:
I'm a little bit of a newbie and have problems installing Red Hat 7.2 on my
computer. Win 98 is already installed and as a harddisk I use a 30Gb IBM. The
disk is divided from c: to f: and I'm trying to install Linux on partition d:
(fat at the moment). When I come to the partition part of the installation it
is no diffrence what way I choose I always end up in the same place, that is
the window where the bug is reported.
What might the problem be?
Thank you in advance,

You will need to follow the instructions in the Red Hat Linux Installation Guide
to manually partition, first removing the FAT partition which is currently D.
