Default Red Hat Install Problems

hey guys
While trying to install RH8 i get this error report when trying to set partitins/formating them -" The Kernel was unable to re-read the partition table in dev/hdb (device was busy). This means linux knows nothing about the modification u have made."

I am trying to install in a old ata 33 HDD which I have made a slave in the Primary IDE connector. The mobo is Asus A7V333R and 1900+ Cpu. Its strnage because if i do proceed. it will go on its business of installing it. But i just can't boot into Linux.

I made partitions in Partition Magic 8. On the old HDD, 256 MB for /boot, 256mb for swap and the rest of the 4.3gb for / (or root).
and then I CD booted to install.

Any1 know what this is and how can i get round this problem?
Any help appreciated.
