Don't forget to specify the "rescue" option---otherwise, the boot will
get stuck halfway through.  Unfortunately, I wasn't able to document
this option in README.IA-64 because I didn't know if the CD-ROM is
actually bootable until we had the master (and then it was too late to
update the README and make a new master...).
