Traceback (innermost last):
   File "/var/tmp/anaconda-7.0.1//usr/lib/anaconda/iw/progress_gui.py", 
line 20, in run

   There's more as noted by the b=vertical ellipsis, but the screen was 
frozen.  There were only 2 or 3 more lines left.

What steps are required to reproduce this issue?

Comment 2 brent 2001-01-19 20:35:37 UTC
I now think the problem is I don't have enough free space.  I'm doing the 
partitionless installation and in the Partitions window it shows only 16MB of 
free space left in the drive summary part of the window.  However, I have a 
30GB hardrive and only 10GB are being used.  So, I guess the question might be 
how do I free up that space on the partition?

Comment 3 Michael Fulbright 2001-01-26 23:46:36 UTC
To do a partitionless install I would recommend at least 800M free on the FAT
partition before you start, and allocating most of that to the loopback file
used for your '/' partition.

Try that out.
