The initrd image is missing in  /boot directory.
I have tried to fix the issue by creating initrd image as suggested by alan <alan clueserver org>: ----------------------------------------------------------------------------

 Has anybody figured out how to install before then?
Yep.  I posted it earlier.

After you do the install, boot with the "rescue option" on the install dvd.

When you get a prompt:

chroot /mnt/sysmount
cd /boot
mkinitrd --image-version --nocompress initrd `uname -r`

Then add this line to the /etc/grub.conf entry:
initrd /initrd-<kernelversion>

save, sync and reboot.


with following result:

Any ideas how to make FC6T3 boot?

Have you tried without the "--nocompress" option?
