On a Sony Vaio F270 which had a working RH6.2 upgrade aborts. When I tried 
to do a new install, has the same problem.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start with a Sony Vaio with disk partitioned, 60M for root, 1.5G 
for /usr, 118M for swap. Win 98 is the first partition on disk.
2. install from CD
3. 
	

Actual Results:  [Install aborts and saved dump onto floppy. System 
reboots.

The following is anaconda's dump...

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 1638, in doInstall
    self.createCdrom()
  File "/tmp/updates/todo.py", line 1189, in createCdrom
    os.symlink(device, self.instPath + "/dev/" + cdname)
OSError: [Errno 28] No space left on device

Local variables in innermost frame:
device: hdc
list: ['hdc']
self: <todo.ToDo instance at 8451b98>
cdname: cdrom
count: 1

<failed>


Expected Results:  Successful install

Installed components were trimmed down to 500M or so, still doesn't work. 
Installed components were basically just kernel, x, network client, no 
multimedia, no programming tools.
Tried to use the anaconda patch (anaconda update disk (RHBA-2000-084)), 
has same behavior.

You need at least 100M, 150M is better, for the '/' partition.

The next version of the installer will display a warning about this.
