I had the same problem last night.  But tonight it worked.  My system was a
fresh install.  I used the GUI up2date interface both times.

My machine is a Pentium Pro 200 with 64MB memory.  Did a text install because
the graphical crashes with only 64MB memory.  Package selection was custom,
selecting individual packages.
