Description Curtis Doty 2000-08-27 19:33:51 EDT
Upgrade to pinstripe dies during copy of stage2 image when there is 
insuficient room in /. It leaves the incomplete image /rhinstall-
stage2.img behind on the full partition.

Appeared on system with only 64MB root partition (stage2.img is >80MB).

Install could chek for free space first. Or better yet, try to copy to 
different partition such as /tmp.
Comment 1 Curtis Doty 2000-08-27 21:35:32 EDT
Worked-around by (before upgrade) creating a symlink /rhinstall-stage2.img that 
points elsewhere with enough free space. The installer seemed to follow the 
symlink with the image pre-copy.

Fixed in internal development tree.
