sysinst currently tells the user to manually run a command under
the OpenFirmware shell to properly set up unattended hard disk
booting. This command asks him to change the 'boot-device'
Ideally sysinst could set 'boot-device' on its own to get things
working automatically. It should also set 'boot-command' and,
maybe (but probably not) 'auto-boot?'.
Haven't had the time to do this. I'm filing this as a to-do
remainder so that the idea is not lost.
