Or maybe not. I guess this was findroot() in sol10 but in sol11 this seems
to have gone away.
Also, I was wrong about the disk target. When I do the install I configure
the USB stick at disk0, seen by Solaris as c3t0, and no findroot() line
gets written to menu.lst. Maybe it needs that line when it boots as a USB
still on real hardware?
I'll try import/export and a reconfigure boot when I get a chance.
