  Hello again.  Am hoping for answers to two questions:

1) It it suspected that I can boot from a RAIDZ on sparc64? (Does zfs-linux
and grub allow for that on any arch?)
2) What do I need to do after creating ZFS volumes to perform a base install
onto those filesystems.  I have them all mounted onto an alt-root, is the next
step getting/running debian-installer, or another "please install the whole OS"
