Bruce,

Slow down! You are in too much of a hurry! You totally borked your FC2
setup. Your upgrade (?) to FC3 seems to also be borked.  Just start
over.  Insert FC3_CD1, reboot, and install over the current
partitions.  Do not attempt to preserve any data. That will be a waste
of your time as well as the list's.
