Hi all,

first the good news: following Paul's excellent palo
documentation I succeeded to boot my 715/33 from its
internal HP C3324A SCSI disk. I booted the kernel from
the special F0 partition and used the ext2 fs on
partition 2 as the root filesystem.

But booting the kernel /vmlinux directly from the ext2
filesystem fails. Here is the bootlog:

Trying scsi.5.0
Boot path initialized.
Attempting to load IPL.

Hard booted.

I have attached the successful bootlog using the
recovery kernel in case it helps diagnosing this
