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.
