Bug#336664: ramdisk too small; entry fields misaligned

Package: installation-reports

Method: installed base system from CD; didn't try network install yet

Machine: HP Visualize B2000
Processor: 400MHz PA8600 (PCX-W+)
Memory: 256M
Root Device: /dev/mapper/vg00-root
Root Size/partition table:

Warning: The partition table looks like it was made
  for C/H/S=*/255/63 (instead of 17366/64/32)
For this listing I'll assume that geometry.
Units = cylinders of 8225280 bytes, blocks of 1024 bytes, counting from

Had to increase the ramdisk_size to 64M at the PALO prompt before
install would work.  Otherwise it ran out of room during startup and
went into a loop, unable to find the net/unix/unix.ko kernel module.

modprobe: FATAL: Could not open
'/lib/modules/2.6.8-2-32/kernel/net/unix/unix.ko': No such file or

On a separate note, during installation, text entry fields and the
progress bars were all misaligned by one tty column to the right
relative to their frames.  Additionally, when a default value was
supplied, its first character would remain as a "dropping" to the left
of the entry field during editing.
