Thanks Oliver. I should have looked in man pages.  

I was unable to install any Linux on the machines that were donated to
the Girl Scouts.  They were old IBM Pentium machines.  I tried three
different releases of RedHat and three different Mandrake versions.  The
kernels would load in memory, but the installers would choke and give
signal 9 or signal 7.

They are expecting some Pentium II generic boxes from another donor.  I
expect to be successful with those when they arrive.

Thanks again
