Thanks to Michael and Nathan for your help so far.  I've
tried /dev/hda,c and e as being root upon rebooting, and every time I
get a kernel panic.  I'm not totally sure why, but I've been looking
into the config to make sure I have things enabled properly (already
found that I hadn't put support for my IDE interface, but that wasn't
the only problem)  Any other gotchas?  I'm completely new to the Mac
hardware, so this is kind of bewildering to me!
