19 You shouldn't *have* to adjust OSLoadPartition actually. Arcboot
20 auto-detects that. You did mount /dev/sda1 on /boot *before* you
21 copied the config file and made the symlink didn't you?
23 In any case, I have the same configuration you do in terms of partition
24 layout (with the exception of sdb1 mounted on /usr), and it WorksForMe(TM).
