Well, Brian just posted another step by step that may contain a clue as
to what I was doing wrong. When the drives get here, and Jessie is
sicced out the door in about 2.5 weeks, I will find out.
Brian defined /home first, then /, and lastly swap,
whereas I was defining /boot, /, /home, /opt and swap in that order. But
I am not at all convinced that the first partition should not be /boot.
If boot then winds up as a directory on /, and its 1.9 Tb into the drive
from from cylinder 1, I'd have reservations about the bios's ability to
find its boot files.
