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!
