That helped a little bit but I was getting error messages like these for every
file in /lib:
rcp: /lib/cpp: No such file or directory
rcp: /lib/ld-2.1.3.so: Invalid argument
rcp: /lib/ld-linux.so.1: Invalid argument
rcp: /lib/ld-linux.so.1.9.5: Invalid argument
When I did a beoboot-install -a /dev/hda this time I get this, so I think
something else is missing.
