noob having problems installing FC3
I downloaded the DVD img of FC3 and burned it to a DVD. Also I shrank my windows partition leaving 15g of unallocated space. Then I boot and start the installing. I pretty much go along with the default options. But after formating I get an error saying:
There was a problem copying the install image to my hard drive and that i am probably out of disk space.
How can that be the case when I reserved 15g for the thing??
Anybody seen this error before or know what to do?

while you're doing the install, you should get to a stage where it partitions your hard disk (you'll, probably, end up with a partition that is your Windows, a partition where Linux goes (called the root or "/" partition) and a swap partition (called, not surprisingly, swap). You may also end up with a boot partion (where the kernel gets put). The question is,
is the installer partitioning your hard disk correctly? Try redoing the install, and when you get to the partition your hard disk, choose the "I want to do it myself" option. Then you'll be shown a graphical representation of your hard disk. Check that you have your windows partition safe , a root (/) and a swap partition [these will, hopefully, have been created the last time you did the install]. Then see what sort of size your "/" partition is (should be at least 3-4 gb).
Use Suse 10.1 and occasionally play with Kubuntu
Also have Windows 98SE and BeOS
