Description of problem:
If I try to install more packages than I have space for, the installer 
tells me that I do not have enough free space and then when I hit "OK" on 
that dialog, it crashes and tells me to report this bug.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
(Text mode installation from cdrom)
1. Select Custom Workstation installation.
2. Select the defaults to most things.
(The hard drive I am installing on is a 2.5 gig hard drive where around 
1.2 gigs is used for linux.  80 megs for swap and what's left out of that 
1.2 gigs for a big / partition ).
3. I make my Windows partition be the default in lilo and basically select 
the defaults to what is selected in most of the options I don't mention.
4.  I select some packages that I think I would like to install, like 
maybe gnome, networked workstation, multimedia, X windowing system, 
utilities, development, and selected more than I have space for (don't 
know this until I OK my package selection and it gets to transferring 
install image)
5. It then transfers its install image to the hard drive and prepares the 
6.  It displays that I don't have enough space to install and tells me a 
number of a certain amount of megs I need to install what I selected (for 
instance, in my case it was around 30 megs).
7.  I hit OK on the not enough space warning.

Actual Results:  The installer crashes and tells me to save some log to a 
disk regarding the crash and to report it.

Expected Results:  I expected that it would take me back to the package 
selection so that I may deselect a few packages so I could get it to 
install in the amount of space I have.

Additional info:

My processor is a 75mhz AMD K5.
The system has 40 megs of ram (two 32 meg edo sticks and 2 4 meg edo 
The hard drive is a 2.5 gig fujitsu hard drive.
