It sounds like the second stage install failed. What we would need is a
copy of the file /var/log/base-installer.log from your system, but since
it's only half-installed, and you're not familiar with the command line,
this might be difficult for you to send to us.
Which CD did you install from?
- Preview CD
- Sounder CD #9
- A daily CD (2004mmdd)
