Sorry for the delay, I've had some hardware failures to deal with. Here's
the output of ls -l /boot on a freshly-installed netwinder:
lrwxr-xr-x 1 root root 24 2005-07-18 10:50 vmlinuz -> > vmlinuz-2.4.27-netwinder
Right, the symlink is there, so why shouldn't it work?
In fact I just made an installation myself and it works without any
As I've mentioned in my original report, the problem is that at the last
screen before reboot the user is given instructions on how to set up the
firmware variables in order to boot the machine from the disk. And there
it says that /vmlinuz is the correct path, and *not* /boot/vmlinuz. If one
sets up the firmware variables using these instructions, the machine is
going to be unbootable.
