How much free space do you have on your FAT partition?
Comment 2 Vojtech Lunga 2001-06-03 06:14:47 EDT
I have over 5 GB free, for Linux I reserved over 2 GB and 32 MB for swap. 
Computer has 128 MB RAM.
Comment 3 Brent Fox 2001-06-12 23:20:00 EDT
You need to make more space for swap.  Try at least 128MB.  I think that will
work for you.

This bug is a dupe of bug #30156.
