Install boot loader:    [O]
Reboot:                 [O]


I needed to manually do "modprobe sata_promise" to have the hard
drives detected. This needed to be done at the "scan hard drives for
installer ISO image", before the USB drive is detected. Otherwise the
USB key becomes /dev/discs/disc0 and the bootloader install gets
confused about which is the "first disk" later on.

Also, had to install a newer kernel as documented here:

Otherwise, things went pretty smoothly this time.
