IIRC, you need to press ctl-alt-f4 (three keys - just like normal vty
switching). You can then use scroll-lock and page-up and page-down and
arrow keys to see what's been said that feel off the screen already.
If it's not f4 you can just try with ctl-alt-f1, f2, f3 etc until you
find the right screen! And one of those should take you back to the
sysinstall normal screen. Don't forget to hit scroll-lock again
(assuming you hit it a first time) to turn off scrolling or the
vty-switch may not work.
PS Re: your earlier question, I'm pretty sure you can use ls and cd to
see what files you have if you can't remember the name of the kernel
directory. Depends exactly what point your boot got too, but it sounds
like the right place for those to work.
