The dreaded "still waiting for root device" . . . on first install

I keep getting this error, assuming it can't find HD. Currently do not have a boot loader but I used Partition magic to set up 75 Gig of FAT32 (since OSX can't see NTFS). I get this trying to install JaS OSX86 10.5.3 SSE2 and SSE3 compatable. Do I need to pre install a boot loader, waht version should i be using. Any one else run into the dreaded "waiting for root device" upon istall attempt?
