Bug#249536: wrong kernel path if boot is a separate partition

Package: palo-installer

palo-installer uses a wrong kernel path if the boot partition is
separate from root, e.g. 2/boot/vmlinux instead of 2/vmlinux

	try it

    When I first installed the system everything seemed to work fine, but
	when I rebooted it I found a problem related to the command string to
	launch PALO (PA LOader). If you consider the partition 2 as /boot, the
	default string is 2/boot/vmlinux instead of 2/vmlinux just because
	After a few tries we, the pa-team guys and I, figured out the problem
	and now everything seems to be fine.

	Thank you all for the great work
