It appears the install log wasn't saved, but indeed when I mount the
drive with TRK, I now see the 12-GB drive (this is a VM) has been
divided up into a 243-MB /boot, 424 MB swap, 3.33-GB /, and 8.01-GB
/home, with the / partition completely full.

Can the installer be corrected to partition things out more sanely on
small drives like this, or at least warn after the tasksel stage that
install may fail because / wasn't allocated enough space? -- Joe
