After a fresh install of Fedora 3, running "yum update" requires at

machines that have small system partitions.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Fresh install of Fedora 3, "custom", "all packages"
2. run "yum -y update"
3. yum downloads updated rpm headers, rpm packages, computes stuff,
then fails with "package xxx needs yyy MBytes in /".
Actual Results: Critical security updates are not installed.
Expected Results: yum should install packages in batches, disk space
