I tried it twice in graphical mode, with the same results.  Anaconda appears to
work in text mode.

How much memory do you have in your system?

Comment 4 Marc DVer 2003-03-30 20:04:02 UTC
64 megs.  Its a whitebox.  Pentium 166, 2 gigs, Tru64 video card.

Comment 5 Michael Fulbright 2003-04-02 20:23:50 UTC
I would recommend a minimum of 192MB of swap.
