    avols143, please remember that Antionline: How do I? is for questions about Antionline itself, not questions about how do you do something...

    As for your install, I suspect that RH6.2 is a tad too old for that pentium and is having hardware issues. You might want to consider a more recent version like RH 8.

    Red Hat 8 is old as well, how about looking at the newer versions of distros http://www.linuxiso.org
