Those silly user errors :)  Well the installer is
mounting / on a ram drive and I guess /var existed
cause that didn't error (but /boot did).  After
steeping back and taking a look at what the install
was doing I figured it out.  The installer mounts the
root hard drive /target (so I just mkdir /target/boot
and the same for var) and mounted the three mount
points AOK.

Thanks for the user error alert!  It got me thinking
