But that's exactly what is supposed to happen! The `boot' file should
get deleted, there's a new file called rcS and the sysinit entry should go
from calling `boot' to `rcS'. Now in your case everything looked good,
but it didn't work. I fail to understand why..

There _must_ have been other warning/error messages that point to the
real cause (rcS not present, typo in inittab, etc). Any ideas?
