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

61    
62     <p>
63     Exit the chrooted environment and unmount all mounted partitions. Then type in
64     that one magical command you have been waiting for: <c>reboot</c>.
65     </p>
66    
67     <pre caption="Exiting the chroot, unmounting all partitions and rebooting">
68     # <i>exit</i>
69 swift 1.5 cdimage ~# <i>cd</i>
70 swift 1.3 cdimage ~# <i>umount /mnt/gentoo/boot /mnt/gentoo/proc /mnt/gentoo</i>
71     cdimage ~# <i>reboot</i>
72     </pre>
73    
74     <p>
75     Of course, don't forget to remove the bootable CD, otherwise the CD will be
76     booted again instead of your new Gentoo system.
77     </p>
78    
79     <p>
80     Once rebooted in your Gentoo installation, finish up with <uri
81     link="?part=1&amp;chap=11">Finalizing your Gentoo Installation</uri>.
