Apologies in advance for too much info.

I have a machine by SuperMicro with an adaptec embedded sata that the
manufacturer set to RAID 1 on two 149 GB drives.
I boot the machine, wait for the configuration checker to finish
looking at the array, which says the array is healthy, and then I can
use the 6.2 install discs to set up the partitions and install all of
the packages I choose.  Everything seems fine, but then after
sysinstall finishes and reboots, I get the message 'Operating System
Not Found'.  I can't seem to capture a dmesg output to see what I did
The drives are WD caviar SE 1600 but I'm not sure what to do for the
geometry.  What gets reported for a geometry is 310101/16/63 and fdisk
reports 19457 cyls/255 heads/63 sectors.  The system has Embedded
Adaptec SATA BIOS v.5 and I set the partitions as such:

/  20G
swap  30G
/tmp  3G
/home  10G
/opt  40G
/var  10G
/boot 7
/usr  29G

Thanks for any clue.

The boot sector and MBR is not getting written to the disks. Make sure you have nothing in the BIOS on the motherboard or the adaptec BIOS preventing the boot sector being written. Typically in BIO's this is some type of boot sector virus protection.

Also, since 6.3 is released, why don't you install 6.3 instead?
