can't run 'uname -a'... it's NOT running!

When installing with FFSv2 option, everything installs but the system cannot 
boot, just replies "bootstrap fail" and thats it! back to SRM console.

When you select 'newfs', fsck_ff fails with the following error:
Status: command failed
Command: /sbin/fsck_ffs -p -q /dev/rsd0a
sysinst: execup /sbin/fsck_ffs: Exec format error


It appears that /dev/sd0a is not a BSD file system or the fsck was not 
successful. The upgrade (I chose install and attempted to install several 
times) has been aborted (error number 1)
Simply install and choose FFSv2 file system and "newfs"... craps out every time!
Use Gentoo ;-)
