As I guessed at the onset of my question, that it was dumb.  Now I know
about the Sun3 specific boot label requirement and also now finally can
see how the first-stage boot functions.  I don't think I've experienced
a first-stage boot block that didn't search the root file system for a
second-stage program.  Now that I've run installboot *after* the newfs
and dump/restore, I've got the expanded partitions and the know-how to
reconstruct from scratch.  Sorry for displaying my stupidity.  -- Ken
