OK, so I have went through all of the installation process. I had a problem with GRUB the first time around, but that was fixed. However, when I tried to boot up the system, I got this:
Code:
fsck:fsck.xfs:not found
fsck:Error 2 while executing fsck.xfs for /dev/ROOT

Later I get this:
Code:
fsck.ex2:Is a directory while trying to poen /dev/BOOT
dev/BOOT:
The superblock could not be read or does not describe a a correct ex2 filesystem. If the device is valid and and it really does contain an ext2 filesystem (and not swap or ufs or something else), then the superblock is corrupt, and you might try running e2fsck with an alternate superblock: e2fsck -b 8193 <device>

* Fsck could not correct all errors, manual repair needed

I tried their suggested solution, and that did nothing. Any suggestions on what I should do?[/code]

tux_octane,

You skipped editiong /etc/fstab to describe your install.
The words ROOT SWAP and BOOT need to be replaced with your partitions.
Also check the fstype, very few users use xfs on root.

Oh...can't believe I skipped a step. At least it isn't anything where I have to install all over again. Thanks...
