I've attached the contents of /var/log. 

While in the shell, I went ahead and installed arcboot using apt-get. 
When I try to boot now, I get:

  Cannot load scsi(0)disk(1)rdisk(0)partition(8)/arcboot.
  Range check failure: text start 0x88802000, size 0xc9b0.
  Text section would overwrite an already loaded program.Unable to
execute scsi(0)disk(1)rdisk(0)partition(8)/arcboot:  not enough space
  Unable to load bootfile: not enough space
  Autoboot failed

I think this may be related to the partition tables not being exactly
right.  I'll look into it.
