Install works... But can't boot...

Hello everyone,
   I'm attempting to install Debian-mips on my SGI Indy (R4600).

I went through the instructions on: 

The volume header on my hard drive was waaay too small, and I couldn't
figure out how to resize it during the install, so I used fx (SGI's
repartitioner... yuk) to resize it.
The install seems to work fine, but after I make my system bootable, I
never see linux again.  I did setup the env variables that were listed,
but I always get:

"Starting up the system..."
"Loading scsi(0)disk(1)rdisk(0)partition(8)/linux:"
"Boot file not found on device:

Any ideas as to what is going on or what I can do?
