System: NetBSD sphinx 4.99.26 NetBSD 4.99.26 (SPHINX) #25: Sun Aug 5 15:14:13 CEST 2007 shark
Architecture: arm
Machine: shark
	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?'.

	Not applicable.

	Haven't had the time to do this.  I'm filing this as a to-do
	remainder so that the idea is not lost.
