I still don't know what I hadn't done, but I found a (sort of) way
Instead of partitioning the new disc and then copying files I simply did:
dd if=/dev/sda of=/dev/sdb bs=1024k
and now the slug will boot from the HDD instead of the memory stick.
I'd still like to know what was going wrong in the first place though.
I've studied various web pages describing the boot sequence and it seems
from the lights that the kernel loaded from flash simply couldn't find
the root partition. Any suggestions as to why would be gratefully
