Default no space left on drive while installing?

After choosing which sets i want to use the installer starts to download them.
Halfway through comp45 i get different errors and i mean always different.
This last time i get this: (i will post more errors as i get them)

id 0 on /mnt: write failed, file system is full
tar: Failed write to file ./insert_random_file: No space left on device

Another time
mnt/usr: bad dir ino 2 at offset 0: mangled entry
panic: bad dir
syncing disks... 864 854 719 372 done

I have no clue but im guessing its the satacontroller on the mobo so when i try to do dmesg i get this
dmesg: sysctl: KERN_MSGBUFSIZE: Device not configured

The hardware is
ABit NF7-S v2.0 with latest bios
Samsung SATA 400gb
Athlon Barton 2500
Intel PRO 1000/GT
Nvidia Geforce 256DDR
1gb DDR ram
1 IDE Lite-on CDrom
Ive removed all the extra disks+satacontroller when i ran into problems to minimize where the errors can come from...

If your failure(s) are due to running out of disk space, then your chosen partitions are too small.

If you'd like further help, post configuration information that will help us help you:
  1. Boot the ramdisk kernel you use for install, once more.
  2. At the "Install, Update, or Shell?" prompt, select the shell.
  3. Issue the following command, substituting the drive-of-interest, such as wd0, sd0, or wd1, for the <device>:

    # disklabel -p m <device>
  4. Post the resulting partition table here. We don't need the content from above the table, just the table itself.
  5. In addition, posting a dmesg(8) might be helpful. FAQ 4.15 may aid you in acquiring your dmesg, as well as the output from disklabel(8).

Solved it but thanks for help anyway. Was some sort of irq conflict that made the satacontroller go crazy. A hint was searching google with "abit nf7-s booting from sata drive" and getting ALOT on hits...
