The most wanted enterprise Linux platform is Red Hat. For getting familiar with it you can have a smart start up by installing it.


1. Go for Bootable _Installation from CD-ROM, Boot sequence can be easily modified on BIOS.

2. Red Hat provides types of installation.

  • Workstation: If you are new users or want a Linux based system for home or desktop use.
  • Server: If you want a Linux based system which can perform functions as a server as well as not customize your system configuration.
  • Laptop: Easy for laptop and it’s like a workstation. It requires appropriate packages and also provide an auto installing environment.
  • Custom: Provide flexibility in your installation.

3. If you are in the workstation. If offers GNOME or KDE desktop environment.

  • Workstation choosing GNOME or KDE: 1.5 GB.
  • The workstation chooses both GNOME and KDE, and games: 1.8 GB.

4. Keep in mind the disk partitioned drive must be formatted or must be in RAW (not initialized) rather than using NFTS or FAT file system. If you choose the automatic partition.

  • The size will decide on the basis of your ram.
  • A 50 MB partition mounted as /boot in which the Linux kernel and related files reside.
  • A root partition mounted as / in which all other files are stored (the exact size of this partition is dependent on your available disk space).

5. Now the installation process: here is the stimulus response.

Red Hat Linux-keyboard configuration Red Hat Linux-choosing your partitioning strategy Red Hat Linux-partitions Red Hat Linux-allowable drives Red Hat Linux-boot loader installation Red Hat Linux-network configuration Red Hat Linux-selecting package groups Red Hat Linux-individual package selection Red Hat Linux-video configuration Red Hat Linux-custom X configuration
