  1. I have been trying to install Linux Redhat 7.2 onto my computer, which has the Abit Kr7a-raid motherboard and when i put in the cd to install it says 'Attempt to kill init' and restarts the computer. I have been able to get it to install on another computer, but i want it to work on this computer. What should i do??

    It looks like some other people are having your problem....

    I take it you have your drive plugged into the onboard RAID?? Please post details information about your hard disk configuration....

    I remember a friend with an ASUS raid board having problems with 7.1 and when we got 7.2 the problems vanished.... It may well be when 7.3 is released all will be well....

    Unless I can find something better to go on, you might either have to wait or do some pretty extensive mucking around, which might involve installing just connected to regular IDE, recompiling the kernel with a later version and then swapping back.....

    I am still looking.... :)

    Shut X Windows down so that you are just in the command line.

    As root, run this:

    Xconfigurator

    Pick your monitor, etc, graphics card. The final stage is the resolution.
