No, it's all from 8r2b. I made a standard BASE and X floppy. I boot the base,
changed the /tmp to 4096 and said no to everything else. then I run setup -a and say
yes to the X11 add on. I insert the floppy, and it starts loading the files, but
says " no space left on device"

after that it says somnething about "feels good about this X11". I go through the
rest of the questions, setting up the mouse and saying no to everything else.

When all is done, I type "df" and the result looks like this:
/dev/ram0 1600 1600 0 100% /
/dev/fdh1772 572 567 5 99% /startup

so I think the problem is that the ramdisk is too small to install everything on it.
I couldn't find anything in the doc about changing the ramdisk size.

Thanks for your help, and keep up the good work !
