Well it turns out that I might not be as stumped as I thought, but I did
ask a dumb question.

In order to add "reboot=bios" to the kernel command line, I tried
editing the "isolinux.cfg" file under my gnap-extensions directory, like
so:

[...]
append initrd=gentoo.igz root=/dev/ram0 init=/linuxrc acpi=off looptype=squashfs loop=/livecd.squashfs cdroot

Remastered, wrote the results to my CF card (I thought), and rebooted.

Well, the package extension I added (elvis) shows up on my target
machine, but /proc/cmdline doesn't include "reboot=bios".  In fact it
looks quite a bit different from the append= line above:

initrd=gentoo.igz root=/dev/ram0 init=/linuxrc acpi=off looptype=squashfs loop=/livecd.sfs cdroot=/dev/hda1 docache console=ttyS0,38400n81 BOOT_IMAGE=gentoo

So clearly I've misunderstood something somewhere, and the question I
should have asked is: How do I find and edit the grub.conf that will
be installed on a GNAP system?

(Sigh.)

Thanks for any straightening out anyone can toss my way.
