Partitions for my new install of FC10, but when I finish creating partitions it wants to select sda2 / instead of sda1 /boot partition to boot off of, why isn't it selecting sda1 instead.
What am I doing wrong ??

Take a look at your /boot/grub/grub.conf
This is what tells grub how to boot and what kernel to use. You can edit this with any trest editor. Remember sda1 would be hd0,0, sda2 would be hd0,1, sdb1 would be hd1,0.

Secondly, the MBR (Master Boot Record) points to the stage2 boot or possibly e2fs_stage1_5, I don't recal, but it does not matter. If you get a boot menu, the MBR is probably correct, if you do not, then the problem is with the MBR. You can correct this by booting into the rescue system from the Fedora CD/DVD, and rerun Grub to rewrite your MBR.

Normally, the partitioner step in the installation will set this up correctly.
