What's not right about the installation? Will it not boot?

Assuming it will not boot, the likely suspects are mounting of the / filesystem or the bootloader. Help us out and give some symptoms. What do you see on the screen? Any messages you could share?

If you upgraded instead of a fresh installation, a frequent problem is that the partitions will be named differently and /etc/fstab will need to be edited. You can use the installation CD as a rescued CD to do that or you could use SystemRescueCD. Mount the file system. Identify the drives with blkid or look at /dev/disk/by-uuid/ and cat /proc/partitions. Enter the UUID= in place /dev/sdxy in /etc/fstab, save and reboot.

editor /etc/fstab

It should look something like this:

UUID=a2d22199-ea79-49ef-8b2e-a43e360965cf        /               jfs     errors=remount-ro 0       1

I have jfs file system. Keep yours as it is.
