The "nvsetenv output-device /chaos/control" is what got output on my monitor 
even before my other parameters were correct. The man page for nvsetenv also 
implies that you can set "input-device kbd", but I don't think that will work 
for my USB PCI card attached keyboard.

Maybe "nvsetenv boot-device `ofpath /dev/sd<whatever is correct for you>`"  
as normally suggested by Ethan will work better for you. I got the previously 
mentioned "can't find /bandit/gc/..." result.
