Before you exit sysinstall, go to the emergency shell I believe alt+F4 will
get you there. Then do:
The output from mount will show where the new filesystems are mounted. You
can check that /boot is populated and that you have a kernel in
/boot/kernel/kernel. To check those you'd type:
ls -al [fill in the root mount point]/boot
ls -al [fill in the root mount point]/boot/kernel/kernel
Check your BIOS settings. It is likely you have a setting in the BIOS
preventing the boot area being written.
