When installing RedHat, it repeatdly crashed while
copying libc.so.5 with error 11 message. After repeated
tries(by God's grace, I suppose) it finally worked! But now
when I work in Linux, very often I get hda0:irq timeout
0xda{Busy} errors. This is followed by ide0:reset:success. Is it a problem with installation?? Also if I use RPM -i for additional packages I want to install, i get irq timeouts. But if i convert RPM to cpio and then use cpio to extract from the archive, it works. What is going on?? And the irq timeouts keep popping up whenever they like...What should I do?

Redhat is a pretty buggy distribution.  Which version are you installing?  It's notorious for self-destructing on an upgrade, sometimes so badly as to leave the system in a completely unusable state.  
Also, did you get it on a CD, or did you download all the files?

I installed Red Hat 5.0. I got the files of  CDROM
Yes, i know it self destructs on an upgrade - each time i tried
to upgrade from the self bootable CD, it trashed the Linux
partition on my hard drive. Even now on RPM -i it does the same
However rpm2cpio is working, and cpio is extracting okay
