    MBD_MNTPOINT=/tmp/makebootdisk.mount.$$ 
    MBD_TMPIMAGE=/tmp/makebootdisk.image.$$ 
    MBD_BOOTTREE=/tmp/makebootdisk.tree.$$ 
    INITBIN=init 
 
5.  ln -sf /home/ia64/Fedora /home/ia64/RedHat 
5.  /usr/lib/anaconda-runtime/pkgorder /home/ia64 ia64 
> /home/ia64/pkgorder-ia64.txt 
 
6.   /usr/lib/anaconda-runtime/genhdlist 
--fileorder /home/ia64/pkgorder-ia64.txt /home/ia64 
 
7.   /usr/lib/anaconda-runtime/buildinstall

You're not generating your tree properly.  Please see
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/AnacondaBuildDocProject.

Also, please try using the actual generated images instead of feeling you have
to do your own.  If the default ones are failing for some reason, that's what
should be fixed.

There are no default images -- I'll be getting together with Dave later this
week ;).  I'm just trying to see if Fedora works on ia64 :)
