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 nightmorph 1.15 --commandline=2/kernel-2.6.16.18-pa11 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 nightmorph 1.15 The first line tells palo the location of the kernel and which boot parameters
40     it must use. <c>2/kernel-2.6.16.18-pa11</c> means the kernel named
41     <c>/kernel-2.6.16.18-pa11</c> resides on the second partition. Beware, the
42     path to the kernel is relative to the boot partition, not to the root
43     partition.
44 swift 1.1 </p>
45    
46     <p>
47 vapier 1.10 The second line indicates which recovery kernel to use. If it is your
48 swift 1.1 first install and you do not have a recovery kernel, please comment this
49 vapier 1.10 out. The third line indicates on which disk palo will reside.
50 swift 1.1 </p>
51    
52     <p>
53     When configuration is done, just run <c>palo</c>.
54     </p>
55    
56     <pre caption = "Applying the PALO configuration">
57     # <i>palo</i>
58     </pre>
59    
60     <p>
61 swift 1.3 Now continue with <uri link="#reboot">Rebooting the System</uri>.

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