Please give more detailed instructions on how to reproduce this issue.

Comment 4 Stephen Rasku 2001-01-30 18:12:22 UTC
To reproduce:

1. Select packages larger than can be installed.  I only had a 1.2 G disk so it
was easy.

anaconda then transfers image and reports this error message:

	You don't appear to have enough disk space to install the packages you have
	You need more space on the following filesystem.

2. Click OK.
3. It asks you to "Click next to begin installation of Red Hat Linux".  Click
Back instead.
4. Click next. (To get back to screen at #3.)
5. Click next. (To really install).  I get message:

	The kernel is unable to read your new partitioning information, probably
	you modified extended partitions.  While this is not critical, you must reboot
	proceeding.  Insert the Red Hat boot disk now and press OK to reboot your

6. Press OK.  Get traceback.
