f10livecd installs but wont boot, Error 2

I finally got the f10liveinstallcd to install,      to sda1
it evidently went thru w no errors
--unchkd sda,sdb initially  then went to custom install
--chose not mbr, instead firstsector of sda1
--the grub.conf  uses UUID for its root=

I copied the grub.conf stanza to my fc5 grub.conf, it is in control

title Fedora (
        root (hd0,0)
        kernel /boot/vmlinuz- ro root=UUID=4e1021d9-e637-4
d03-97cb-fdd0d4b4cbee rhgb quiet
        initrd /boot/initrd-

it all looks normal to me, altho use of UUID instead of  /dev/sda1
i did not expect

on attempting to boot it lists the above kernel line,
followed by
Error 2: Bad file or directory type

I have seen some google msgs w this response
but no help to me

I ran across one google msg re liveinstall cd saying
it installed fine, but locked up on booting-- no further detail

also another msg  saying wouldnt boot if using scsi disks ( I am)
but again no detail

is the liveinstallcd known to have problems booting?

any advice?
try f10dvd instead?
