How much RAM does your old-box have? RAM-disk used at the installation-boot needs at least 4 Megs, I guess. And it must remain also enough for the system to run. And BTW: the RAMdisk image is compressed, so at boot time you have TWO images in memory: the compressed one - max 1.44Mb - and the decompressing one - around 4Mb. So, you must review your memory resources. Borrow some memory from someone. After installation it could happen to work even with your initial RAM size.
