Does the following output of nvsetenv look like yours?

little-endian?  false
real-mode?      false
auto-boot?      true
diag-switch?    false
fcode-debug?    false
oem-banner?     false
oem-logo?       false
use-nvramrc?    false
real-base       0xffffffff
real-size       0x100000
virt-base       0xffffffff
virt-size       0x100000
load-base       0x100000
pci-probe-list  0xffffffff
screen-#columns 0x64
screen-#rows    0x28
selftest-#megs  0x0
boot-device     ata/ata-disk@0:0
diag-device     fd:diags
input-device    ttya
output-device   ttya
boot-command    begin ['] boot catch 1000 ms cr again

Here is the partition table

        #                    type name                length   base    ( size )  system

Block size=512, Number of Blocks=3335472

Now, Linux resides on /dev/hda6, and quik installed something into the
boot block of /dev/hda6, but the boot-device is set to
ata/ata-disk@0:0 above. Should that be ata/ata-disk@0:6?

Note that I use Debian version 3.1
