Thanks Ramaujam,

I have made several copies of the media downloaded
from several different site and also went and bought
7.3 CD's. I am totally frustrated how can a 12GB root
partition can run out of space for installing 1.8GB
basic installation. I cannot do FTP because i do not
have another computer and no patience to make a
ethernet card driver disk.

Redhat installation shield is creating a folder called
/mnt/sysimage/..... and installing there i do not
understand what that is.
