Summary: The aircraft stalled 1.2 miles east of runway 28L during an ILS approach. An aerodynamic stall occurred when the flightcrew allowed the airspeed to decay to stall speed following a poorly planned and executed approach characterized by an absence of procedural discipline. Improper pilot response to the stall warning including failure to advance the power levers to maximum and inappropriately raising the flaps. Flightcrew's inexperience in a "glass cockpit" automated aircraft.
