Comment 1 Matt Wilson 2001-09-06 00:43:43 UTC
Was the FAT filesystem you selected to install on a valid FAT filesystem?

Comment 2 Need Real Name 2001-09-08 00:48:52 UTC
The FAT filesysytem I installed Red Hat on was a FAT32. It did however contain 
a couple of folders which hold data files. But I did account for that when I 
allocated space for the / partition.

Comment 5 Brent Fox 2001-09-13 21:52:24 UTC
How much space did you allocate and what was the size of the install?  Also, how
much swap did you specify to use?

Comment 6 Brent Fox 2001-09-24 16:16:40 UTC
Closing due to inactivity.  Please reopen if you have more information.

Comment 7 Need Real Name 2001-09-24 21:28:17 UTC
I had 2GB available and I used 1.8GB for the / partition and about 120MB for 
the swap.

Comment 8 Brent Fox 2001-10-02 16:13:57 UTC
Ok, so you had 1.8 GB for /...what was the total size of all the packages you
selected to install?  

Or, put another way, what type of installation did you select (workstation,
server, or custom)?  After that, what package groups did you select to install?
 It's possible that the package groups you selected took up more than 1.8 GB.

Comment 9 Brent Fox 2001-10-15 16:21:28 UTC
Any more info here?

Comment 10 Need Real Name 2001-10-17 15:41:12 UTC
Apologies for not replying sooner. Been away! The installation was workstation 
and the packages were the default standard packages plus the remaining games. 
The total package size only took up just over 1GB.

Comment 11 Brent Fox 2001-10-17 19:05:03 UTC
It seems that this bug is a duplicate of bug #18032, which as an errata that
should fix this problem.
