It'd probably help if you showed us exactly where it fails.  Also, it's
important to know, does it always fail at exactly the same point?

If you're not sure how to tell, even just making your logfile
(logfiles, if it fails at different points) available for us to fetch
would help.

I can't see any reason it would be any less possible than on a diskful
machine.  But then, I don't think I've tried to run anything more
recent than 4.x diskless....
