FP1 wont install on a fresh Warp 4 install (re-install).

Recently re-installed Warp 4.  Had problems I thought were from having too many

 OS/2 prompt, run FDISK, then add the OS/2 partition to the Boot Manager menu. Reboot from the hard drive and you should be in busin=
ess again.

I did that and still no luck. I suspect something is wrong with the boot manager
installation. I"m working from copies, and maybe They got hosed.

I'll try from the originals (or make new copies).

The exact message I get right after the re-boot following disk 6 is
    Operating System Missing, System halted.
