Tim,

Thanks. It might not have been apparent from my original post, but I'm
actually a long time Red Hat / Fedora user. Once you provided the link,
I found part of what I was looking for here (specifically the "Hard
Drive" option):

http://docs.fedoraproject.org/install-guide/f11/en-US/html/ap-admin-options.html

The key part that's missing is how to get to the old "boot:" prompt so I
can use "linux askmethod". There was a time when this information was
included on the distribution CD, and actually made part of anaconda's
early menus.
