Cant install bootloader

All of install works up to the "Installing Bootloader" step.
After the "Creating Initial Ramdisk" step, i get the message
that there was an error in this part of the install. I've
tried mounting the drives and running silo by hand to use
/mnt/etc/silo.conf, but then i get a message that it cannot
open the superblock on the drive/partition. This happens
when either drive is set up as the root drive. I've tried
starting partitions on cylinders past 1, toggling the
mountable flags in fdisk, but I have yet to get the step to
complete. All other steps complete successfully, and all
files are successfully copied to the drives.
Today I meet exactly the same problem >_<
when trying to upgrade my old Redhat 5.2 for sparc
to 6.0 .
Hey, why can't silo open the superblock ?
I'm still having the problem too. I haven't seen anything about it
since i submitted way back when... if you want dumpe2fs or any other
output or ANYTHING that will help, let me know...
At least i see i'm not the only one having the problem!
Did 6.1 exhibit this problem as well? Please reopen this bug if you are still
having a problem getting the Sparc installed.
