SUSE Linux 11 SP1 - won't reboot after installation

I have an issue with installing SUSE Linux 11 SP1. I've installed SUSE Linux 10 SP3 with a very similar configuration a few times and have no problems. It seems that the bootloader GRUB is not installed.

After the first reboot, it goes to the GRUB command line menu, from where I have to run the following procedure I found with Google to boot the server, however I have to do this each time the server reboots.

grub> root (hd0,0)
grub> kernel /vmlinuz-[version stuff here] [parameters here]
grub> initrd /initrd-[version stuff here]
grub> boot

Here is the partitions I set up during the install:

And for my bootloader configuration, I've selected GRUB and attempted both "Both from Boot Partition" and "Boot from Custom Partition" but neither worked.

Here are some errors when I run the repair procedure:

I notice it says "selected bootloader location "/boot" is not on /dev/md2/ anymore".

But I never selected that, /boot is always on /dev/md0 according to my partition table.

Any help appreciated. Thanks a lot.

have you read the novell install documents ?
SELS 11 is a VERY different animal than SELS10

also seeing as SELS is NOT free and you must have a support contract - have you used your novell support -- you ARE paying for it .
