it took me a couple of days before I had figured out how it works. The
solution was in the manpage of nvsetenv.

This is what I did for my 7300:
boot-device	scsi-int/sd@0:0
boot-file	/vmlinuz root=/dev/sda2

Note that quik cannot handle symlinks, so do a 'cp /vmlinux /vmlinuz',
check /etc/quik.conf and run quik.

When you are going to run entirely without macos, make sure your bootdisk
works. See the archive from last week, I posted some stuff about this
