mv /etc/silo.conf /boot
ln -s /boot/silo.conf /etc/  #probably don't need to do this
vim /boot/silo.conf # make sure it is pointed at the /boot partition...

worked for me...
it's probably a good idea to
cd /boot ; ln -s /boot .

the installer should do the above for you.. should probably file a bug
on it...
ls should work if it has the right partition, othwerwise you have to
specify the drive...

boot the installer again and mount+chroot into your current
