install problems, revisited

original problem:
> tried installing RH5.2 and got all the way through, telling it
> to install the boot loader in /dev/hda master boot record.
> when i tried to boot, got error "disk boot failure, insert system
> disk and press enter".  using the boot disk made at installation
> the system came up satisfactorally.

the real problem:
  some dummy forgot to update his cmos when he changed the configuration
  on hda.  rh6.2 now safely installed and booting satisfactorally.

thanks to brian conway, kevin gleason, mike bilow, et al for helpful
suggestions.  who could have guessed?
