can't copy it.

Doing a graphical or text mode installation?

Comment 2 Ken Desloover 2004-02-13 18:59:41 UTC
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 2004-02-18 00:42:17 UTC
Workaround by booting with 'linux text' -- bumping up the default
minimum ram.
