Re: Fw: help install error



I have tried the changes suggested, but still have the install problem,
last night I installed a 30 gig drive, I have recentlly bought a new mother
board, (soltek 75LIV M/B VIA KLE-133) and CPU (AMD Athlon XP-1700+(OD256k)
I bought my RH 7.3 from a reputable dealer boxed and sealed C/W manual etc,
do I need a lower spec PC???
