    Fedora Core 1 Installation Error Out Of Disk Space: HELP!!!


    Hey everyone, I have a problem. Before my installation, I made 3.8 gb of unallocated disk space for linux to make its partitions with. I am installing personal desktop. I put the CD in, start the installation and make the correct partitions and it said it successfully made them. It made: /boot-(about 100mb), swap-(about 256 MB), and root (/) - (The remaining space)

    Then, I move on, select the things i want (not much); and begin the installation. It goes for about 20 seconds before giving the following error message:

    "Error transferring install image. You are probably Out of Disk Space"

    I don't know what its saying; the install file says personal pc only takes up 2.2 gb. I gave it a lot of extra. Please help, I've never had linux on a pc before and this installation is giving me so much trouble! I'm running a pretty old PC: pentium 2 processor, 256 megs of RAM and the 3.8 gb for linux. If anyone could help that would be great. Thanks!

    I have already tried the commands:

    linux allowcddma
    linux ide=nodma

    Neither of which have worked for me. Please help!

    Use 2 partitions,

    one (/)
    One swap (2 times the size of your memory.)
    I saw that you have 256MB Ram, that swap drive should be 512MB.

    And make sure that they are formated, pref ext3, but ext2 will also do.
    The boot image is transfered to the /boot directory, but 100MB should be more than enough. But try this config and let me know.
