I was able to boot an a500 and am installing using an image bdale
pointed me at.

The disk partitioning can automatically partition a "whole disk".
But I'm annoy I can't get it done the way I want it:

ion:~# fdisk -l /dev/sda

Disk /dev/sda: 73.4 GB, 73407865856 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 8924 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

   Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
/dev/sda1               1          32      257008+  f0  Linux/PA-RISC boot
/dev/sda2              33         157     1004062+  82  Linux swap
/dev/sda3             158        8924    70420927+  83  Linux

I'm annoyed because it's not obvious how to tell it palo to create an
ext2 file system in the boot partition and mount that:

ion:~# df -h
Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda3              67G  690M   63G   2% /
/dev/sda1             244M   29M  202M  13% /boot

Can someone fix this?
