How much RAM is installed in the system?
I am also facing the same problem. My machine has 64 MB
of RAM installed on it. I am trying to install RH 7.3
on my machine (Intel celeron). I had once installed
RH 7.3 on this very same machine with much ease.
But I am getting this error while installing 8.0.
I have the following configuration -
Intel celeron 667MHz
82810E Intel chipset motherboard
Samsung Samtron SC 428PS monitor
IDE Primary master(40GB) - samsung SV0401H (with FAT Partitions)
IDE Primary slave (20GB) - samsung SV2042H (on this i am trying to install linux)
IDE Secondary Master - Samsung CD-R/RW sw-24
I got this to work by installing RH 8.0 in the text mode.
Type "linux text" at the boot prompt. That is the doorway
to get this installed.
Yeah 128MB is required for a graphical install.
