I purchased a Pentium II 266MHz PC with a 6.4GB Hard drive, a Zip drive, and a DVD ROM drive.  I had my Maxtor 4.3GB hard drive installed so that I could install Linux.  I tried installing RH 4.2, but I received a screen full of scrolling 0s and 1s.  My devices are as follows:

Primary master      - 6.4GB hard drive   /dev/hda
Primary slave         - Zip drive               /dev/hdb
Secondary master  - DVD ROM drive    /dev/hdc
Secondary slave    - 4.3GB hard drive   /dev/hdd

I have been unable to successfully get Linux installed.  I'd like to have a dual boot system.  Your assistance is greatly appreciated.

All of my devices are IDE.  I wasn't certain if I could have Zip drive be a slave off of a DVD ROM drive.
