I'm a first timer with linux.  I've downloaded RedHat 5.1, all 300+Mb.

I have read some of the documentation and have made a boot disk using rawrite.exe and boot.img.  When I boot from this disk (on an empty 486DX4 100, 8X ATAPI IDE CD, NE2000 compat, 32 Mb RAM, 1.2GB HDD) and let it run I get a menu screen and then a list of detected devices and then
Kernel Panic: Free List Corrupted Error

Any Ideas?

It sounds to me like you have a problem with your memory subsystem or CPU heating.  See http://www.bitwizard.nl/sig11/.

Sorry about my last comment just getting a lot of garbage comments lately.

As I mentioned the error is
Kernel Panic: Free List Corrupted Error
With the latest version of the boot image the error is.
Kernel Panic: VFS: LRU block list corrupted.

Which is immediatley after the line
RAMDISK: Compressed image found at block 0.

Other OS's seem to go OK.

Attention JYoungman.

Please answer this question with anything so I can award you the points.  You seem to be close to the mark.  The RAM appears to be faulty.  Replacing it allowed the system to continue installation.

OK, how's this for an answer?  

PS: I like the progression from skepticism to "darn it". :-)

I get further but there's still a prob.  Trying to install from HDD  system just sits for ages on the Supp disk setting up SCSI.  I've got no SCSI devices!
