Did you install lilo? Your BIOS shouldn't skip the disk if a boot loader was installed and your boot order is correct.

I downloaded the ISO, created a VM, and followed the directions in the handbook to install.  For some crazy reason, I decided to give JFS a try as my root file system.  Unfortunately, my disk won't boot.  I can boot from the ISO and mount the disk just fine, but the VM's Phoenix BIOS skips over the disk and goes straight to PXE.
