Guess what, Terry? You were right, and I was wrong on this one. I'm still 
not entirely clear on where the UML kernel gets involved, since I just 
booted a non-UML kernel inside UML. But then again, I'm not running a UML 
kernel on the host system, either; I'm using the current Red Hat kernel 
and the UML rpm from the project website. *sigh*

I still think there's value to running the installer under UML, especially 
if I want to test the whole installation process (one of my Lunar pet 
peeves is that I can't backtrack certain operations during install), but I 
was mislead by some of the UML FAQs regarding Red Hat installs into 
believing that I had to replace the kernel in the ISO.

For the moment, I will try adapting your short list to create a Lunar 
filesystem for testing while I continue trying to figure out what's going 
wrong with the installer and its error messages during boot.

Thanks for your help. And if you think you can explain to me where I went 
wrong regarding the UML kernel, feel free to follow up off-list if you 
don't think it would interest everyone else.
