Advanced RISC Computing.  It is a specification that attempts to
standardise certain set of features of RISC computers, including the
console firmware.  ARC console follows that specification.

Third option?  MILO reads the OsLoadOptions thing, treating it as a
command as if you type it in.  It should be something like
`boot sdb2:vmlinux-2.0.35.gz root=/dev/sdb2'.  Alternatively, set it to
just `boot sdb2:' and provide /etc/milo.conf on sdb2:.
