Barry: Possibly the small amount of RAM is causing it to fail at the
partitioning stage of the installation? I have CentOS 5.0 running
on a box with 384 MB of RAM and on two boxes with 512 MB of RAM. 

Whether or not the 256 MB of RAM you have is causing the problem,
consider adding more RAM. You and your system will be happier with
more RAM!
