Re: "Warning" failure in chroot . . .
Hmm. Possible, and maybe I can experiment with the idea a bit.
How much space do I need for an installation that all goes into one place?
My immediate problem would be that that space is not currently available
on hda - the normal boot device. I was also worried about the
1024-Cylinder problem, although I guess that's now a non-issue.
If you have any knowledge of the internals of the installer process,
could there also be problems because of trying to set permissions on
something in /target/var/cache/... ? That's a vfat partition at present
and would not fully support file permissions. I don't know to what
extent the driver "fakes" it. My ability to experiment with that is
rather more limited but I'll see.

I don't know if this has anything to do with your
problems, but I have never used separate partitions.
(Unless, of course, it was a windows partition!)
Less install headache, and you don't run out of space
on one partition while wasting space elsewhere...
