I have a Packard Bell EasyNote F5 series

I am trying to install Linux Red Hat 9.0 (Shrike)
I go to install the OS and it comes up with an error after a while saying:

Error Installing Packet: There was an error installing rpm-4.2-0.69. This can indcate media failure, lack of disc space, and/or hardware problems. This is a fatal error and your install will be aborted. Please verify your media and try to install again.

I have made a partion 10Gig to install Linux to... I have 256MB RAM, 2.8 Ghz P4, and all my hardware is functioning properly.

Does anyone know the cure for this...

Thanx in Advance
