AFAIK, That should work. Under -current you don't have to do anything
special (root on ?), but that's not the case for 1.2.
At the boot prompt, try using -ar and telling to to boot from wd1. A
friend of mine did that under 1.2, and it appeared to set the default root
partition to whatever is specified with -a. I havn't verified this
personally, but the -r flag does have the name "RB_DFLTROOT" in the source
- so it would make sense (I'm surprised it's that easily actually - up
until a few days ago, I thought you had to recompile the kernel as well).
You did change /etc/fstab didn't you?
Hope this helps,
