Is rbootd definitely running?  I find that if it can't change to the
appropriate directory, it just exits silently.

BTW, /export/hp is exactly the same length as /usr/local, so

sed -e s:/export/hp:/usr/local:

allows you to use /usr/local/rbootd as somewhere to put kernels if you
don't fancy clusteering your /.
