can't copy it.

Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2004-02-13 13:30:49 EST
Doing a graphical or text mode installation?
Comment 2 Ken Desloover 2004-02-13 13:59:41 EST
Graphical - X windows starts fine, and continues even after the 
anaconda crash - but can't do anything.

I am trying to pre-partition using Disk Druid, using same parameters 
as the automatic partition was trying.
Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2004-02-17 19:42:17 EST
Workaround by booting with 'linux text' -- bumping up the default
minimum ram.
