    RedHat is a Linux, not a Unix.

    Linux is often called a "descendent" of Unix.

    RedHat 7.1 is an older version and there are newer versions that you can download from http://www.linuxiso.org.

    What is the File System on those 3 partitions you are trying to mount?

    Ok what your problem was is that you made the partitions use i assume the fdisk command in windows. FAT32 is a windows partition there for it will not run Linux. I suggest downloaded the latest Redhat version from http://www.linuxiso.org then useing the RH (redhat) partition tool to create the partitions.
