Hi Janina,
I guess I am just paranoid about installing Linux for the first time, and I
would rather screw up zipspeak, than screw up my first install of RedHat.

Don't bother with zipspeak. You're wasting your time given that you have
an entire drive to devote to Linux. You have nothing in jeopardy and
nothing to lose. Install the Red Hat you downloaded and learn from
something that's up to date.
