You DO have vitual consoles!!! I know as I used them to find out what the
heck goes wrong during FTP install. Just try AltF1 AltF3 during
installation. At a certain point it will give you the F3 console. I use
the two disks to boot up and do a FTP install. Should work similar with
harddisk install. No X needed. Virtual console DON'T have anything to do
with X11.

The obvious things are still most suspectable to failures or mistakes. The
way you described the FAT system used made it unclear wether or not you
used FAT 16 or just had used FAT32 and got reported FAT16.

Use Alt-F3 to see what goes wrong and we might provide detailed and
accurate help. I will give it a shot with my second system to see what
goes on during FAT16 install.
