'\tmp\raid1.o already exist' during intall redhat 6.1.

when I install redhat 6.1 on my computer(I have one IDE harddisk running win98 and one IDE cd-rom), whether I boot from linux floopy disk or using Autoboot.bat in MS-dos, it always gives an error message that '\tmp\raid0.o already exist', then it give an signal11  error and let me reboot my computer.(sometimes raid1, raid5). What shall I do now?

Well, the first thing to try is to download the latest install images from red hat.  If this is done or fails, try the following.  Disable the cpu cache in bios if possible.  Then, try swapping the memory modules around in their slot arrangements.  It is normally attributable to error prone ram or cpu cache.  Normally the former.  But, really, I would try to download the latest boot image for your floppy disk from redhat.  Also, you might try to change your bios to allow cd rom booting if it is an option.  This way, you can avoid the floppy boot altogether, assuming you have an original cd from redhat.
