The mkfs #5 error isn't something you need to worry about.

try re-installing, but double the RAM allocation for the Installer (in the
Get Info window). That should get rid of the installer bomb problem.
In the Booter Prefs window, try turn off "auto size RAM", and tell it you
have 4 megs of ram.

goot luck!
