Description Daniel Lyons 2002-02-20 02:27:41 UTC
Since we are working under the assumption that /boot is it's own partition, there is 
no need to prefix "/boot" on these lines:


kernel /boot/bzImage root=/dev/hda3
kernel /bzImage root=/dev/hda3

I think it's just for consistency's sake.  we have a boot->. symlink so that
this'll work.  That way people have the same paths from grub and linux. 
Forwarding to g2boojum anyway, but I think it'd be fine to mark this as WONTFIX.
Comment 2 Grant Goodyear (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2002-02-22 13:20:35 UTC
I think we finally have things set up so that users who choose
not to create a separate /boot partition won't crash-and-burn,
so I prefer to leave those items as they are now.
