  ARC console, for future reference.

  Remember the place where you changed the setup to boot from sdb1?
There were four (I think) fields in that setup section. The final one
was arguments to pass to MILO - it's probably currently set to 'boot
sdb2:vmlinuz-2.0.35' or something. Just type in the full commandline
that you use to get it to boot.

  The other way is to use rdev, or at least it would be if we had it,
but we don't appear to. I assume it doesn't work on alpha kernels...?
