Interesting idea. I hadn't considered that possibility as the early
part of the boot, where I have the printk times for each step, clearly
shows it as hda. However then in the init stages the system starts
udev. Maybe that changes the name.
With yaboot is there a way to edit the command line at boot time
like there is with grub? I'm having a hard time because the Mac Mini
seems to be dimming my monitor and I cannot read what's happening
right before boot!
I suppose I can edit the yaboot config file if necessary.
