Subject: Howto install

I'm trying to install my first OWL Linux on new machine, that contains no
operating system at all. I've tried to boot from CD I had made from iso
image (Owl-current-20011616.iso), but it seems to be impossible. I've got
the following errors:

INIT: version 2.78 booting
Setting up a RAM disk
mke2fs 1.18, 11-Nov-1999 for EXT2 FS 0.5b, 95/08/09
tar: ./etc/inittab: Cannot open: No space left on device
tar: ./etc/inputrc: Cannot open: No space left on device
... and so on.

Is there a possibility to boot such image at all, or I have to use another
Linux distribution CD to create partitions on my discs and build OWL
installation packages?
