Perhaps you mis-typed it here in the mail, but boot-device should end
with 0:0 , not 0.0 . You can check after getting the error with


and looking at boot-device.

I'm assuming this is an oldworld model? If you need to reset that, type

setenv boot-device /pci/mac-io/ide@20000/ata-disk@0:0

You might also be able to shorten it with an alias, try devalias to see
what it says.
