It's software, all right. The installer is setting things up in a way that is
trashed by something during the boot process. Things are moved around and
drives are renamed. Knoppix is seeing your drive(s) correctly because it's
booting the CD -- if your system could get through the boot process, it'd see
things correctly too.
If I were you, I'd try to install from an old CD set. This has happened in
just the past few weeks. You might want to try woody. It worked.
