Re: AMD64 install fails

Hi KAS and List
	I have now managed to install FC2
I tried 6 more times, finally re-partitioning the hard disk
and having
sda1 	/boot	100MB
sda2 	/	75GB
sda3	swap	3GB

Did a full install ie ticking every box but NOT the Everything box
about 4.2GB not 6.7GB

No boot loader installed on sda

The POST INSTALL did not fall over but I am sure this is because
for some reason it no longer has to open /dev/null.

The /dev directory is still corrupt !!!!

I feel sure there is still a problem with accessing over the end of /dev/ram0
during install, it is just that some (most) install sequences don't need to use
the address space that has been corrupted.
