16     <body>
17    
18     <p>
19 vapier 1.10 On the PA-RISC platform, the boot loader is called palo. You may need to
20     emerge it on your machine first.
21     </p>
22    
23     <pre caption="Installing palo">
24     # <i>emerge palo</i>
25     </pre>
26    
27     <p>
28     You can find the configuration file in <path>/etc/palo.conf</path>. Here is a
29     sample configuration:
30 swift 1.1 </p>
31    
32     <pre caption = "/etc/palo.conf example">
33 swift 1.11 --commandline=2/kernel-2.6.12.2-pa2 root=/dev/sda4
34 swift 1.1 --recoverykernel=/vmlinux.old
35 swift 1.11 --init-partitioned=/dev/sda
36 swift 1.1 </pre>
37    
38     <p>
39 vapier 1.10 The first line tells palo the location of the kernel and which boot
40 swift 1.11 parameters it must use. <c>2/kernel-2.6.12.2-pa2</c> means the kernel named
41     <c>/kernel-2.6.12.2-pa2</c> resides on the second partition. Beware, the path
42     to the kernel is relative to the boot partition, not to the root partition.
43 swift 1.1 </p>
44    
45     <p>
46 vapier 1.10 The second line indicates which recovery kernel to use. If it is your
47 swift 1.1 first install and you do not have a recovery kernel, please comment this
48 vapier 1.10 out. The third line indicates on which disk palo will reside.
49 swift 1.1 </p>
50    
51     <p>
52     When configuration is done, just run <c>palo</c>.
53     </p>
54    
55     <pre caption = "Applying the PALO configuration">
56     # <i>palo</i>
57     </pre>
58    
59     <p>
60 swift 1.3 Now continue with <uri link="#reboot">Rebooting the System</uri>.

69    
70     <p>
71     Exit the chrooted environment and unmount all mounted partitions. Then type in
72     that one magical command you have been waiting for: <c>reboot</c>.
73     </p>
74    
75     <pre caption="Exiting the chroot, unmounting all partitions and rebooting">
76     # <i>exit</i>
77 swift 1.5 cdimage ~# <i>cd</i>
78 neysx 1.12 cdimage ~# <i>umount /mnt/gentoo/boot /mnt/gentoo/dev /mnt/gentoo/proc /mnt/gentoo</i>
79 swift 1.3 cdimage ~# <i>reboot</i>
80     </pre>
81    
82     <p>
83     Of course, don't forget to remove the bootable CD, otherwise the CD will be
84     booted again instead of your new Gentoo system.
85     </p>
86    
87     <p>
88     Once rebooted in your Gentoo installation, finish up with <uri
89     link="?part=1&amp;chap=11">Finalizing your Gentoo Installation</uri>.
