This appears to be a duplicate of Bug 76123. Most "cannot allocate memory"
problem during install are related to the aforementioned bug. The problem is
that there is not enough memory to process the transactions that are to be
executed by the installer. Anaconda, in GUI mode, requires at least 64M of memory.
You can alternatively attempt to install Red Hat Linux 8.0 in text mode by
specifying "linux text" at the SYSLINUX prompt upon first boot.
