Full Version: First Install Booting Problem
Linuxhelp > Support > Technical Support
I'm getting really frustrated. I installed Red Hat Linux for the first time yesterday, and it didn't work. This stupid Grub program, whatever that is, kept turning on instead. So I looked into it and found out I didn't have enough memory. So I thought, oh okay, and I put more memory in. I re-installed it. But grub is still loading instead of linux! I don't know what the hell I did wrong! I followed pretty much everything the book said to do...
grub is used to boot into linux

if u see a "grub stage "x" message"

where "x" is a number it is fine, that IS linux
Unlike windows, linux gives you the option to boot different cores called Kernels. Grub is used to choose which kernel you want to boot (or if you want to boot over to something else like windows). Grub should be the first thing you see when you turn your computer on and you should be able to select an option like "Red Hat" and press enter to boot into Red Hat.
