[gNewSense-users] metad yeeloong install error message

I wrote yesterday that I got an error message while doing an install.
When Karl asked what the contents of the message were, I felt a little 
embarrassed and decided to get some useful information for him.

So I re-did the install just now and got the same messages, and the install 
finished OK again.

After I answered the questions about the command line and default command line 
("quiet"), I got a dialog box with the header: 

Configuring linux-image-

"You are attempting to install an initrd kernel image 
linux-image- This will not work unless you have 
configured your boot loader to use initrd. (...)

I repeat, You need to configure your boot loader - please read...

If you have already done so, and you wish to get rid of this message, please 
put "do-initrd=Yes" in /etc/kernel-img.conf.

Note that this is optional, but if you do, you will continue to see this 
message whenever you install a kernel image using initrd.

Do you want to abort now?"

I answered 'no' and continued.


Later on I got a second message, with the header:

!Continue without boot loader
No boot loader installed

"No boot loader has been installed either because you chose not to or because 
your specific architecture doesn't support a boot loader yet.

You will need to boot manually with the /vmlinux kernel on /dev/hda1 and 
root=/dev/hda1 passed as a kernel argument."

I finished the install and re-booted normally without any problems.  I saw a 
Grub screen as I have previously.

Why did I receive those messages?  

Will I have a problem when a new kernel version is ready?
