	This message just means the system found two bootable drives when it
was searching for root devices.  Or, rather, it found two drives with
potential root partitions.  I've seen it on machines I've booted where I
have a broken raid1 mirror, and I'm using the second broken piece as a
root drive while I fix things up.
