Every installation needs a "root partition", this is denoted by a single
forward slash "/". If you only have one partition for your install mark that
partition as your root partition. To boot Linux just make sure you have *ONE*
of your partitions marked as "/". I've never really used the Redhat installer
but I've seen disk druid used (I think that's still around in it) and it gives
you an option for a "mount point" (or some such synonym), just put the mount
point as /, and you should be able to move on and install.
