Linux 6.2? You mean, Red Hat 6.2? Is it possible you erased Windows XP (do you know if it still exists?).
It sounds like, when you installed, you told linux to put the boot portion on floppy rather than on the hard drive (MBR or first sector). Do you remember which one you did?

For Linux help try this:
