Boot faild after install of Fedora 11


I have installed fedora 11 on a IBM x346 server.

After installation i boot from the hard drive and I got this error:

1962 Drive does not contain a valid boot record

I dont have change any of the boot sectors.

On the server i got 2x 70 GB disk and 4x 140 GB disk.

2x 70 GB disk run in RAID 1 and 4x 140 GB disk run in RAID 5

I have set the partitions like this:

70 GB x2:

/dev/sda1/boot 500MB
/dev/sda2/swap 8192MB
/dev/sda3/var 41000MB

140GB x4:

/dev/sdb1/squid 61000MB
/dev/sdb2/ rest

Is this the right way to set up th boot loader?
Can anyone help me with ths?

No, it should be /dev/sda1
