You need to regen the phase two image.  The kernelcommandline option in
/etc/beowulf/config doesn't do anything to change the phase1 image, it
only affects the phase2 image.  And for your problem, the only thing you
need to modify is the phase2 image.  So just go in beosetup, pull down
the file menu and click the 'Create BeoBoot File' option, then reboot
your nodes.
