Comment 2 Michael Fulbright 2002-04-24 11:54:13 EDT
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?
Comment 3 Need Real Name 2002-04-24 13:39:59 EDT
I created the partitions in the following order:
1) /boot  50Mb
2) /swap  256Mb
3) /      the rest of the free space.

Comment 4 Michael Fulbright 2002-04-25 17:49:16 EDT
When you use these partitions, you are saying the installer does not accept
having '/' assigned to the rest of the space?
Comment 5 Need Real Name 2002-04-25 18:18:28 EDT
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.
