Damn Small Linux wont install

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I am trying to install Damn Small Linux as a dual-boot on my laptop, but it wont install. It keeps saying that diferant files could not be copied because there was not enough free space (installing into a 6 GB partition), and then it asks if I have Windows installed on my primary partition, I say yes, and the installer quits.
