Re: Installation Problem

I can't seem to find anything else wrong with this...

Ben mentioned the Boot Loader, how can I see if it's set up properly? I also tried setting up the first partition (starting at 0) as System Type Boot but that did not work.

Anyone else have any suggestions?

The first error means nothing. The second error sounds like you aren't
booting the correct disk, or that you didn't install the boot loader (or
the boot loader installed incorrectly). Try doing STOP-A at the OBP and
type "boot disk1".
