Hey I had the same problem as you did with the install! It was trying to install to a RAM drive or something like was really weird, but I forget how I got around it. I wish someone knew what was up with that

I don't remember.

Try making sure your partitions are correct. Try again.

oh, I remember now...I was trying to install from the floppy disks. Everything went fine, I had it auto-create the partitions, yet...I had no luck actually getting it to install. Since I'm noob at unix as a whole, I had no clue what I was doing, but I didn't recognize the md0 at the time. I later found out that it was a reference to a RAM drive, and it kept saying that it was out of disk space, and exiting the installer. I was, this is an 18 GB drive, and I haven't specified some odd installation path, so of course there's plenty of room. Well...once I downloaded the mini install CD, it loaded just fine....go figure
