Additional info:

Comment 1 Paul Skeberdis 2003-04-12 23:01:47 UTC
Increased memory available, and was able to install new kernel.

Apparently "installing package kernel-2.4.18-27.7.x needs 7Mb on the / 
filesystem"

really means

"installing package kernel-2.4.18-27.7.x needs 7Mb additional space on the / 
filesystem"
