    where exactly are you in the install process?

    I believe if you haven't chrooted yet then df-h won't give you anything useful because your still in the "live" environment.

    make sure you dowload the md5sums and check the tarball then retar it.
    All right, brain. You don't like me and I don't like you, but let's just do this and I can get back to killing you with beer. All New Users Read This!!! If you have a grub problem please look at GRUB MANUAL

    You should put this reply in your original thread, instead of creating a new one, just copy and paste your reply and do a "post reply".

    Then ask a moderator to delete/lock this thread.

    p.s. where does it say that sda2 is not full?

    Use CODE tags when posting output of commands. Thank you.
