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

(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

6. It displays that I don't have enough space to install and tells me a

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.
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.
