I have linux.ko loaded.

Hmm, I'm stuck. From within the bash shell at /compat/linux/bin/bash I
have awk, sed, and the seperate chown, so I don't think I need to make
those symlinks. I made /compat/linux/bin/arch and it returns "i686".
How does the installer determine the operating system...

Wait, found it. /compat/linux/etc/redhat-release currently holds only one line:

Red Hat Linux release 8.0 (Psyche)

I've added the following line, stolen from Red Hat EL 4:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS release 4 (Nahant)
