lol. Never would've guessed that was an option. Well, that looks more like
Device Start End Sectors Size Id Type Flags
/dev/sda1 0 979964 979965 478.5M 1 Boot
/dev/sda2 979965 286728119 285748155 136.3G 83 Linux native
/dev/sda3 0 286728119 286728120 136.7G 5 Whole disk
I find it interesting that fdisk shows sda3, but parted does not. Odd. The
device does exist in /dev, though, so I guess I believe fdisk.

Right. As above, mine seems to be id 83. *shrug*

Ahh, great. That makes sense, thanks for the explanation.

Thanks. So, I adjusted the UUID I had in my search lines of the menuentry
for booting with ZFS root, as it seemed to be pointing to sdb1 instead of sda1.
But, that just gives me a different problem I think I've also seen before:
error: unable to open
error: unable to open
ERROR: /pci@0: Last Trap: Fast Data Access MMU Miss
I think I may just throw away what I have now and restart. I can't immagine
I'll be any worse off, and it might be better starting with a newer base
image than I started with many months ago. Unfortunately grub is much more
complicated than boot-loaders I've used in the past. If someone builds a new
sparc64 ISO that I can be sure has the newer grub bits in the installer, I'll
just reload my "normal" image, then try to rebuild the ZFS disks again.
