SRM understands disklabel, so you have to convert your hard drive
partition table to a disklabel. See
for a script on how to do it (with the sdisklabel command). Most
likely your partition table will have to be modified to reflect the

If you do not want to convert your partition table you can boot from
Either way, the SRM-Howto is a must-read.
