You shouldn't *have* to adjust OSLoadPartition actually.  Arcboot 
auto-detects that.  You did mount /dev/sda1 on /boot *before* you 
copied the config file and made the symlink didn't you?

In any case, I have the same configuration you do in terms of partition 
layout (with the exception of sdb1 mounted on /usr), and it WorksForMe(TM).
