I am confused. Was it the destination drive or the source drive.

If you started the installation from CD how can it ask again for the source drive (what a dump installation utility is that ?).

Anyway even if you install everything in proper way there will be a lot of missing drivers. Because RedHat Linux 7.3 was released almost 4 years ago. It won't have drivers for any of the devce released after it. So you better go with FC.

I met the same thing while doing as4 installation...
May try to hook up both cd-rom and hd under the same ide port.
Either primary or secondary shall work...
Also, please disable your sata driver option.

Regards,
