14     <p>
15     On the PA-RISC platform, the boot loader is called palo. You can find
16     the configuration file in <path>/etc/palo.conf</path>. Here is a sample
17     configuration:
18     </p>
19    
20     <pre caption = "/etc/palo.conf example">
21     --commandline=2/vmlinux root=/dev/sdb2 HOME=/
22     --recoverykernel=/vmlinux.old
23     --init-partitioned=/dev/sdb
24     </pre>
25    
26     <p>
27     The first line tells palo the location of the kernel and which boot
28     parameters it must use. <c>2/vmlinux</c> means the kernel named <c>/vmlinux</c>
29     resides on the second partition. Beware, the path to the kernel is
30     relative to the partition, not to the root of your filesystem.
31     </p>
32    
33     <p>
34     The second line indicates which recovery kernel to use. If it is your
35     first install and you do not have a recovery kernel, please comment this
36     out. The third line indicates on which disk palo will reside.
37     </p>
38    
39     <p>
40     When configuration is done, just run <c>palo</c>.
41     </p>
42    
43     <pre caption = "Applying the PALO configuration">
44     # <i>palo</i>
45     </pre>
46    
47     <p>
48     Now continue with <uri link="?part=1&amp;chap=10">Installing Necessary System
49     Tools</uri>.
