What distro of Linux did you try to install? And when does the error show up?

Try something lighter, like Xubuntu, Crunchbang, Feather, etc... All those require a lot more memory than 128 gb. As for making your own, it's just a matter of changing the code, which is freely available.

^ Yeah, I concur with Hreno. LFS is the most common way I've ever known. Just IMO

MikeM, please don't respond to threads more than two weeks (ish) old. The OP has probably solved the problem or moved on, and it pushes more recent threads down on the list.

Yudun, I said in the post immediately before yours not to revive old threads like you just did. Please don't do that again.
