Beginning Installation

Assuming your PC boots from the CD, insert CD 1 from the Red Hat Linux set into the CD drive and restart your system. A Red Hat install screen appears (Figure 163). Hit “Enter” to install in graphical mode.

Press “ENTER” to continue the graphical installation.

 


A bunch of text will scroll by (Figure 164), and it might appear your system is hung. But, it’s probably just working away behind the scenes.


Figure 164: Scrolling text

Whenever Linux boots or reboots, you’ll see a screen of scrolling text.

Sometimes, it might appear that the system has frozen. Just be patient, and it will

continue. For example, it might take awhile to search for a network connection.

 


The first screen of the install process allows the single option of hitting “Next” (Figure 165).

Hit ‘Next.”
