Thanks Mike-

I had seen the following in a previous post to the powerpc list:

>>        label=Linux
>>        read-only
>>        initrd=/boot/initrd.img
>>        label=old
>>        read-only

Does it matter if I don't state the absolute path: /boot/vmlinux?  Also,
I see that this version includes an initrd statement for the old image
as well.  Is this unecessary?
