[ale] Dual Boot WinXP Pro + Fedora Core 1 "You are probably out of disk space"



-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA1

The exact verbage of the error is:
"An error occurred transferring the install image to hour hard drive.
You are probably out of disk space."
At that point, it gives me the option "ok", and then "back" or "next".
If I choose "next", it goes through formatting, and then displays the
error.  If I click "back", I can get back to the bootloader config, but
not back to disk druid.
