Hello parisc-linux,

I can't quite get palo to boot a kernel from disk. My bootup progresses
as follows:

Then it seems to hang there. If I boot from the network, everything
works fine (and fast).

My /etc/palo.conf contains the following:

bob:/home/fullung# cat /etc/palo.conf=20
--commandline=3D2/boot/vmlinux HOME=3D/ TERM=3Dlinux console=3Dtty

Relevant fdisk output:

bob:/home/fullung# fdisk /dev/sda

Command (m for help): p
