Post install won't come up on fresh install of Fedora

I am trying to install Fedora 8 with a fresh install. Everything seems to be find until I do the reboot after the during mid install as requested. After the reboot the post install about registering and setting up the firewall doesn't come up at all. The system just boots to the main login screen of Fedora. The OS seems to be working when I log in but a lot of things don't seem to be working correctly. Has anyone had this problem before and what is the fix?

Thanks!

Can you be a little more specific as to what's not working?

Could you run a couple of commands as root ?

I wonder if it is trying to run firstboot at all :

Code:
# /sbin/chkconfig --list |grep firstboot
firstboot       0:off   1:off   2:off   3:on    4:off   5:on    6:off
# cat /etc/sysconfig/firstboot
RUN_FIRSTBOOT=NO
And as any user, I wonder how many packages were installed :
Code:
$ rpm -qa |wc -l
1464
