So you are using the woody installer. Should work. Can you please post
the entrie output of this command? As I understand, you already

In a nutshell:

SRM -> aboot -> Linux

(Similarly to BIOS->grub->Linux).

If you boot with -fl "0" then aboot uses the 0th entry in its
aboot.conf, with -fl "i" you get a command line where you can either
boot a predefined entry or somthing else.
