I am totally new to Linux and picked up a book. Red Hat Linux Bible. All good so far...
When installing, the wizard takes me to a Partitioning part where it offers to Partition Automatically or Manually. In either case, the Disc Druid programme is unable to create the partitions as it claims there is not enough space. My disc is a FAT 32 type and is partitioned in 3(C,D and system). In either partitions there is 5 and 35 GB of free space.
I'm running Windows XP SP3.

Any ideas how I can go on?

linux requires unallocated space for installation. You will need to resize one of your windows partitions to create some free space and I suggest using the D drive. Be sure to defrag the drive before resizing.

If the Book is based on Redhat version 9 then I would suggest downloading the latest Fedora. RH9 is obsolete and will not have support for the latest hardware.
