      Running the java SDK inataller (v1.3.0) on an NT4 machine produced an error
      message stating there was not enough free space on the disk, please free up
      (can't remember how much) and try again.

      Looking in the NT explorer showed that drive C had just over 10 Gig free.
      Creating some large dummy files to reduce the free disk space to 7 Gig allowed
      the installer to run successfully.

      Looks like an overflow in the free space check to me.

      Please note, I do not expect a reply - this is just for your information.

      Double-clicked the install for jdk 1.3.1, and got the following message:

      Java 2 SDK <in title bar>
      There is not enough space on drive c:\ to extract this package.
      Please free up 35.75 MB and click Retry.

      I have 52.0 GB free on C:(Review ID: 124998)

      I have 8GB free on c:\ but whenever I try to install the SDK it says "Out of
      disk space, free 35.75MB and click on retry to continue installation".
      Obviously, it has an issue with the way it reads available disk space.
