FC11 32bit, create 1GB VMWARE disk, attempt to install Linux, it will crash.
Please test with F13 and let us know if this issue still exists. At this point, F11 is really quite old and an extensive number of storage bug fixes have gone in.
You will still not be able to use automatic partitioning with 1GB of disk in F13, although the error message should be a bit clearer. The minimum disk space required for automatic partitioning is somewhere around 2GB. You can either allocate a larger virtual disk or you can partition the disk using the "custom layout" option.
thx, custom partitioning fixed it. i created a 1GB and didn't use the rest.
