The devices in OF have different names than in Linux. You're using
the Linux name, but the OF name would be something like scsi/sd@0:0.
Remember to substitute the numbers (0:0) with the right values,
which are the SCSI id and partition number.

I was under the impression that the Lombard was not New World,
but I suppose I could be wrong. I have a Wallstreet model, and
it is definitely not.
