Many thanks for this Brian, 

It's made me see that I was at fault by not simply making a /boot slice
to avoid the misplacement of the boot files. I've obviously been using
grub/x86 for too long.

I'd still rather install over the network but that's a different
problem. At least I can now execute a perfect install from a CDROM.

However, on first boot:

  "Fast Data Access MMU Miss"

It never rains, but pours... Back to x86 and grub I think.
