Wait! I think I didn’t make it clear enough: the machine doesn’t boot. After I 
specify the currdev and rootdev the machine can successfully “load” the kernel 
but then it all totally freezes at the spinning wheel…

I’ll try with the -e on the command line but I think the problem is a bit 
beyond that.
