Description of problem:
I am trying to install 8.0 (d/l'ed from internet) on a IBM Thinkpad 560x (2640-
70u) with a Pent 233 cpu and 48 mb ram, 30G hd.  I have Win2k on it, trying to 
dual boot ti with Linux (probly will use a boot floppy to access Linux)  I 
cannot boot direct from CD (pc card based) so I have a boot floppy to get to 
the CD-ROM.  I run autoboot off CD 1, it goes through all the info gathering 
and so forth, say click here to begin packages install, I see the screen with 
the 2 progress bars, and then I get an error about 10 lines long, the end of 
which says "cannot allocate memory".  It will not save the error to floppy.  
Help.  I have had 7.1 running on here, should I reinstall it and then upgrade?
