15 <title>Installing PALO</title>
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">
48 # <i>palo</i>
49 </pre>
50
51 <p>
52 Now continue with <uri link="#reboot">Rebooting the System</uri>.

60 <body>
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 cdimage ~# <i>cd</i>
70 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>.
