11 <title>Installing PALO</title>
12 <body>
13
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>

47 <p>
48 Now continue with <uri link="#reboot">Rebooting the System</uri>.

57
58 <p>
59 Exit the chrooted environment and unmount all mounted partitions. Then type in
60 that one magical command you have been waiting for: <c>reboot</c>.
61 </p>
62
63 <pre caption="Exiting the chroot, unmounting all partitions and rebooting">
64 # <i>exit</i>
65 cdimage ~# <i>cd</i>
66 cdimage ~# <i>umount /mnt/gentoo/boot /mnt/gentoo/proc /mnt/gentoo</i>
67 cdimage ~# <i>reboot</i>
68 </pre>
69
70 <p>
71 Of course, don't forget to remove the bootable CD, otherwise the CD will be
72 booted again instead of your new Gentoo system.
73 </p>
74
75 <p>
76 Once rebooted in your Gentoo installation, finish up with <uri
77 link="?part=1&amp;chap=11">Finalizing your Gentoo Installation</uri>.
