Odd FC4 installation issue

I've just tried installing FC4 on a slightly older Sony GR290,
with /boot on hda14 and / on hda15. (I also have Windoze, Ubuntu, RHEL
WS 3, and SUSE 10 on this system).
Once the install is complete, it doesn't even write the bootloader to
the hard disk (as directed). When I go into rescue mode, the only thing
in the /boot/grub directory is the splash screen (splash.xpm.gz) file.
As it boots, I get strange messages:
1) suggesting that selinux is enabled (I disabled during install)
2) saying "cannot open /etc/fstab" due to "permission denied"
3) lots of similar "permission denied" messages
4) the boot process never finishes after install - I get the spawning
too fast message reminiscent of a problem with xfs
Since there's nothing of importance in /boot/grub (i.e., I should see
files such as stage1, stage2), it's not like I can do a
I also wonder if there's a missing element during the install. I've
redone the install once, and confirmed that nothing gets into /boot but
the splash screen. However, I've been able to use this DVD just fine for
a VMWare FC4 install, and all the normal /boot/grub files are there in
my VMWare version of FC4.
Suggestions would be appreciated.
