You need to have a '/' partition for the install to continue. It sounds like
you have enough free space to create a '/boot', a '/', and a swap partition.
What sizes did you choose for each?
I created the partitions in the following order:
1) /boot 50Mb
2) /swap 256Mb
3) / the rest of the free space.
When you use these partitions, you are saying the installer does not accept
having '/' assigned to the rest of the space?
I have changed the sequence of the partitions. I put '/' first, '/ boot'
second and omitted '/ swap'. This was accepted by the Installer and I managed
to complete the installation.
Thanks for your help and concern.
Great to here it is working!
