install exited abnormally
When system tries to reboot I get the message "LIWrong loader, giving up..." 
and hangs - system is unusable

Tried to upgrade 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
RH 9.0

How reproducible:
Can't reproduce without loosing data

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Tried to upgrade again - already at 9.0
2.Loader not written because no kernel pkg loaded - selected kernel pkg in 
custom upgrade option
3.Tried "Create new boot loader config"  (originally default to "Update boot 
loader config"
Actual results:

 "LIWrong loader, giving up..." and hangs - system is unusable

Expected results:  Boot loader upgraded.

I'm going through Bugzilla closing some bugs that have been marked as Modified
for some period of time.  I believe that most of these issues have been fixed,
so I'm resolving these bugs as Rawhide.  If the bug you are seeing still exists,
please reopen this report and mark it as Reopened.
