 Cool! Glad to hear it!

just out of curiosity, are you trying to use the (older) net-install
images - they were out three or four months ago?  I had this same thing
with those floppy images...

You could try going over to a VT ( do alt-F2) and you'll get a shell -
from their you might be able to find out what's going on, maybe it
needs a chmod +w or some such. See if /tmp exists too. the drive that you
are installing to is in /target (in case you were curious)... anyway, you
can frequently looka around and set things straight from this shell - and
then just return to the install menu (alt-F1) and see if you can go on ...

keep at it, I know you'll get it now...
