The only other thing that I should have mentioned is to make sure that you make the /dev/hdb1 partition as bootable ;-) Otherwise, your desciption sounds - as they say - sane... and it sounds like it should go for

Yes there is a custom settings button. I’ve
got it reading the entire HD as /boot ext 3 and I’ve split the array into
/ ext3 and a swap. Does that sound correct? There is only one section now, Hard
Drives, and there are no LVM. I’m tentative to continue without input
because of the amount of time it takes me to get to this point again. Besides I
have other work I can do while I wait for a reply. Thanks again.

I don't think that this is exactly what you want. If
you look closely, you will see that LVM is spanning both your array & the
IDE drive ( /dev/hdb is your IDE hardrive and it is showing 2 partitions.
You would want it to only have a single partition, /dev/hdb1. Have another go
at it and see if you can force the boot partition to consume the entire
drive. I don't have the interface in front of me right now, but I
"think" you can do a custom partition setup...
