Ok, after two days of trying to get Windos 1900 installed and working , I

I've got a new(er) machine that I want to install Linux onto. The machine
is a Celeron 1.7GHz.
When I run the RedHat setup, I configure the basic stuff, like timezone,
root password, and a couple of user accounts. Then it goes to the
"Installing Packages" screen, and just hangs. It shows 0 packages for the
entire list, although it never even asked me which packages I wanted to

You are using a pretty old distro on quite recent hw, it's a wonder
that you get this far at all. I'd highly recommend a newer version.
AFAIK RH 9.0 is the latest.

Unfortuaneately the site doesn't recognise the possibility that
someone may want the dos/windows versions of the unix commands to do
Here what I have:

Here's what I need:
The non-unix instructions to create a bootable floppy / CD that the
autoboot will recognise and get the installation underway.
Please point me to a FAQ or website that contains this info.

I am setting a system up in a Lab for our company to decide on a Mail
server....here are the specs.
We have 60 users and that's not likely to grow.
We have a domain and static IP address
the MX record points to mail.mydomain.org with the registrar for DNS
We need to for our users to use Outlook Express or 3rd party clients on the
road or at home

Hard Drive: Seagate 80 GB, Ultra 100, 7200 RPM

What does everyone think of this setup? I don't plan to overclock and
intend to run somewhat quiet(So the Antec case). This will not be a
gaming machine. I'll probably running Eclipse IDE/Java etc.
Thanks in advance for your suggestions.
