I don't think you can boot off a vinum partition, because you have to
load vinum *after* the kernel is running. It usually loads early during
the run through /etc/rc as the system goes multiuser, before visiting
/etc/fstab with mount. Perhaps you have your root partition on another
disk and just didn't mention it? Or is there a tricky way to do this
that I am ignorant of?
