Yes. From SRM you use aboot.

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 
different numbering scheme. 

If you do not want to convert your partition table you can boot from 

Either way, the SRM-Howto is a must-read.
