Description hiller 1999-04-30 10:47:01 UTC
I just selected "workstation" and the program says "not
enough space". The free disk partition is 1.5 GB.

The reason for this is:
/boot was mounted on the big partition
/ was mounted on the small partition
(in disk druid all looked normal)

I was unable to replicate this problem in the final release of 6.0.

Comment 2 hiller 1999-05-11 08:32:59 UTC
I had the problem with the final (ftp) release.
The disk is an IBM DCAS-34330 (4 GB). The first partition is NTFS with
2502 MB. I tried to install RH 6 in the remaining space.

Comment 3 Jay Turner 2000-02-10 19:14:59 UTC
This issue is resolved in the 6.1 installer.
