processor and about 64M of RAM. The install goes fine until I try to

it will crash. If I choose automatically, it will usually crash just 
before the installation of the files, if I choose the wizard, it will

choose fdisk it crashes immediatly.

Expected Results:  The installation of all the packages should have
