Sounds like sda1 did not get mounted as /boot
Does "mount" list /boot?

Only that it might cause confusion later.

Not Good. vmlinux/initrd symlinks and *-* files should
be here.

No - you've already run "palo --init-partition" once and that's sufficient.

The vmlinux/initrd didn't get copied to sda1 when it was mounted
as /mnt. umount sda1 by hand and "mount /dev/sda1 /mnt" so you can
clone the original contents of /boot (sda3) to /mnt (sda1).
