I start installing, everything configures fine. But as soon as it starts a 
loopback thingy this is what it says, and I had to copy this by hand 
because as soon as I do this it doesnt let me do anything except move the 

Traceback (Innermost last):
  File "/var/tmp/anaconda - 7.0.1//usr/lib/anaconda/iw/progress_gui.py", 
line 20, in run.
    rc = self.todo.doinstall ()
  File "/tmp/updates/todo.py",line 1488, in doinstall
  File "/tmp/updates/fstab.py",line 645, in make File systems
     (self.progress window, _"loopback),
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/isys.py",line 78, in dd file
    os.write (fd,buf)

OSError: [errno27] File too large

thats it, and I downloaded the images and burned them onto 2 cd's that is 
how I installed this.  The Partition I have setup for this is 9.3 gigs big 
and I already tried the anaconda update and it didnt work.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Insert Cd
2.Restart Computer
3.Run install

Actual Results:  It crashes, this is after I configure X windows.

Expected Results:  Finished installing.

How large did you make the loopback file for the partitionless install?
