After downloading the update to fix bug 18032 I am now getting this error
at the same point in the process:

Make sure you boot the installer with the line
and enter the update disk when prompted.
I have made the boot update disk and am using the linux upgrades command.
I was told that the installation that I am choosing may be causing my problem.
I was attempting to install this as a partitionless install on a 3 Gig FAT32 partition.
I was told that there are two problems with this:
1. FAT32 only supports 2.0 GIG partitions and that I need to partition down to that size
(don't ask why it seems to work now for windows, but I believe them)
2. The speed penalty this will cause my 200MHz Cyrix chip is going to be unsatisfactory.
I will relook my installation - I am thinking that I'll try to move stuff around on the hard drive and make a linux partition
(stuff is spread out all over the place). I've been reading the manual and believe it or not I now know how to do it
in linux - but not yet in windows.
I'll try it tonight or tomorrow and get back to you with the results.
