>Description:
        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'
        variable.

        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?'.

>How-To-Repeat:
        Not applicable.

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