O2 can't boot off disk directly (that is, load a kernel from the volume header 
like IP22).  You have to use arcboot for that.  Arcboot's a hair slow at 
reading kernels off disk, but wesolows made a wicked patch I'm going to test 
soon and put into portage which will dramatically speed up disk loading.

Just `emerge arcboot`, and follow the instructions printed after the build 
finishes, and things should work out fine.  If not, drop a note here about it.
