  I chose "Single user mode"  in installation CD boot menu. It booted
up successfully and gave me a command prompt.
  Then I turned my swap partition on and mounted the tmpfs (because the
'installer' refused to run without it and told me about that). 
  Now when I try to run 'installer', it shows me a blue screen with a
dragonfly, but after a couple of seconds it vanishes and gives me the
following message:
   + Creating DFUI connection on ``9999''
   + Connecting on ``9999''
    dfuibe_installer: bind(): Can't assign requested address
    ! ERROR: Couldn't connect to frontend on ``9999''

  Could somebody please explain me the meaning of this message or the
point at which I did something wrong?

  Thank you.
