Installing Redhat Enterprise Linux 6
slu

The following screenshots shows how I installed Redhat Enterprise Linux 6 (RHEL6) on a virtual machine running in VirtualBox.

This is a very basic installation that I used for development.

I've added some short notes above each screenshot.

Just press enter to start installing:
rhel6-01

You should test the media, i.e. press enter:
rhel6-02

After a while, you'll be ready to begin; click "Next":
rhel6-03

Select whatever language you're comfortable with, I selected to use English:
rhel6-04

The keyboard layout should match you physical keyboard:
rhel6-05

For a simple (development) server the "Basic Storage Devices" should suffice:
rhel6-06

I was installing on a new virtual machine, so I just clicked "Yes, discard any data"; but please be carefull:
rhel6-07

Give your machine a short descriptive name, e.g. "rhel6-dev":
rhel6-08

The time zone should match where you are:
rhel6-09

For a virtual development machine I would use a very simple password, e.g. "password" (sic):
rhel6-10

I selected the second option, in my case it would be the same as selecting the first:
rhel6-11

Unless you have some special requirements, you should just click "Next":
rhel6-12

Now installation really starts, clicking "Format" will do just that:
rhel6-13

Disk has been formatted and you should just click "Write changes to disk":
rhel6-14

Disk formatting and partitioning is done, click "Next":
rhel6-15

I selected the "Minimal" installation:
rhel6-16

Go for a cup of coffee, this will take some time:
rhel6-17

Done! Click "Reboot":
rhel6-18

The machine should boot and you can now log in and play with your new server.
