Redhat installation

I recently purchased a Redhat book and cdrom for installation.  Before I install it on my newer computer, I'd like to install it on my old IBM Aptiva. It has only 1 gig hard drive, 100 megahertz speed and  16 megs of ram.  Would it be possible to install it as a server and get rid of Win 95 completely?  The book says I need more space on the harddrive.  Is there a way to do a custom install?  I'm new to Linux and would really like to learn it. Thanks

Yes there is a way to do costum install. First, boot the linux setup, then choose disk druid. Then before you create any new partions for linux like it says in your book delete all the partion that are there. That will get rid of windows. Then to choose custom, I belive that when it asks you what kind of install you want to do, it will have a custom option. I don't recommend this because it is easy of beginers to miss a important program. If you want to pick and choose programs, get suse 6.3 it has a much better program choose, and it tells you what everything is.
