Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2002-09-20 15:30:07 EDT
There was a problem where partitionless installs would sometimes not be able to
find enough free space to copy the second stage to. Make sure to have sufficient
space for your system and then things should work.  Partitionless installs have
been dropped from current releases
