    your first problem is that you're running gnome....
    can you remember if you changed any conf files as root before this happened? if you did which one?...also how much disk space do you have left?

    yeah, if you can install Linux, it's extremely easy...just choose upgrade existing Linux system and wait...if you need it, there is some info on the redhat home page...
