Description of problem:
I ran through the install of the beta 3 separate times.  The first time 
through I selected Grub as my boot loader, upon finishing the install and 
rebooting, the machine booted fine.  Second time through I selected Lilo 
as my boot loader.  The installer finished, but upon reboot, I got a 
kernel panic, could not find fs.  The third time, I once again chose Grub, 
and voila, upon reboot, the system came up normally, with no issues.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run the beta installer.
2. Select Lilo as your boot loader instead of Grub
3. Finish the install and reboot.
4. Note the kernel panic.

Actual Results:  Kernel panic - Unable to load FS

Expected Results:  I expected the machine to boot normally.

Additional info:

I read some of the other issues posted, and I noticed one issue that 
mentioned some possible problems with Grub.  This problem may be related 
to the fact that Grub was installed the first time through, but possibly 
the changes showed up the next time when I selected Lilo to boot with.  No

We (Red Hat) really need to fix this defect before next release.

This should be fixed in a later build.b
