So right now I have this state:

If I go to the open firmware prompt and do:

devalias hd /address@hidden/pci1014,address@hidden/sas/address@hidden
boot hd

Then I can boot the grub image I dd'd to the /dev/sda1 PReP boot
partition.  I can then boot linux after loading the configfile manually
(grub doesn't seem to know /dev/sda4 is where to look for it since it
booted from /dev/sda1 I guess).

The devalias won't stay across reboots (Rather annoying).

So I can now boot from disk with some manual intervention.  That's getting
really close then.
