It is indeed `s' as I managed to write a Sun label by now - but it does
still not occurr in the help.

I took the image files from our german ftp mirror...  But alas I still
cannot boot from the hard disk although I now /have/ a ext2 partition
starting at 0 and I also have a whole_disk partition - but OpenBoot still
says `sd(0) not ready'.  At least silo did not give any warnings but
configured correctly...  

I am just installing the rest by now before I continue to check up on that
silo thingy...
