nvsetenv /pci/mac-io/ide@20000/ata-disk@0:0

when i tried this command it gave me variable not called error. I tried nvsetenv boot-device /pci/mac-io/ide@20000/ata-disk@0:0 this did not give me the error but when I reboot I am getting

can't open: /pci/mac-io/ide@20000/ata-disk@0:0 error on a white screen (i am guessing the OF screen?)

also do I need to setup another variable I found in some documentation on the web that says boot-file?

thank you

If you get a boot: prompt, try typing Linux in response.
