it seems that sda3 stand well into the first 2gb of your disk?
Do you have severall disk on your system and so do boot on the right disk?
if your system 'autoboot', interupt it with [Esc]; the main menu would 
show you something like:
   Primary boot path:    core.FWSCSI.6.0
   Alternate boot path:

Try to restart your netinstall, in the second menu you should be able to 
go into a small shell.
There create first /mnt/BD in your ramdisk and so mount /dev/sda3 /mnt/DB.
verify first the contents of /mnt/DB/etc/palo.conf.
