Question Linux XP 2006 installation error


Hi
Can someone help me? I'm trying to install Linux XP 2006 onto 2 of my PC's. On both of them I get a error "gnome-applets-2.8.0-5. This can indicate media failure, lack of disk space, and/or hardware problemsInow only have the option of restarting the PC.

As I say I tried it on 2 PC's with the same error. Any ideas?

Since the message mentions "media failure" as a possible cause, have you checked the media? How large are the drives/partitions you're installing to, and have you actually run out of room?
