write failed, disk is full

Installing 4.7 through ftp, I get a series of errors
that say things like:
/ write failed. disk is full
failed to create /usr/src disk is full

The disk is new, and certainly isn't full, so I'm
thinking it could be a problem of where I've place the
partitions on the disk.
The disk is a new 120Gb WD1200JB and the relevant
partitions are as such (in this order):
10gb ntfs
3gb freebsd (/)
800mb freebsd (swap)
55gb freebsd (/usr)

Are my freebsd too far into the disk?
