Exclamation Installation Issue : FreeBSD 7.0-RELEASE on Dell D630

I've been a long time Linux user and have recently started tinkering with FreeBSD. I downloaded the bootonly.iso and have done a few installations over FTP in both virtual machines (VirtualBox ftw) and on a home desktop. Today I thought I'd try to install it on my D630 laptop, but I'm having nothing but problems.

I saw on another thread that a user has it installed on the same model, which is promising, but the error I'm getting is during the initial installation. No matter how I do the partitioning, everything from auto-partition to manually creating a small swap and huge root partition I get "no space left on device" and "no more inode" errors.

Now I understand inodes vs blocks and all that, but can't figure out why it'd immediately be running out. This basically starts from the first chunk that gets pulled down from the FTP server.

Any suggestions on how I can get around this issue and actually get this installed?
