I've studied your problem, and I can't say for sure what's wrong. My
* Try reinstalling again and checking your basedisks. Because _some_
files got installed and other didn't I would suspect that you may have
(1) installed the same disk twice by mistake or (2) made two copies of
one of images (i.e., both basedisks contain the same image).
* Try booting back to the bootdisk, mounting your root filesystem and
taking a look at what you see (or don't see) on it.
* I couldn't find anything that you had done wrong in the transcript
that you mailed. Here's how to make a ``custom'' bootdisk, in case
you want to try this as well:
(This assumes you're running from the bootdisk and have the root
filesystem mounted on /root.)
(Of course, you need to have a floppy in /dev/fd0. :)
# /root/bin/dd if=/root/vmlinuz of=/dev/fd0 bs=16k
Sorry I don't have a definite answer about this one.
