Ah, interesting, currently trying to install redhat through ftp and that doesn't seem to be working so it's got to be the cd's.

SUSE and Mandrake are much easier to install (and use) in my opinion, though I usualyy use XP I have Mandrake 9 on the system booting too (PS: SUSE 8.1 is on the PCPlus cover DVD this month)

I have RedHat 8 and it has a full GUI for install - I think after about RH 6.2 they ran with the GUI. Which version are you installing?

hmm - 8 & 9 have both installed with a GUI for me - did you run with the default params or did you specify that you wanted it text only?

On FTP installs you can do gui but when it gets to a certain stage it says something about headers.
