Last I checked, the automated installer created a separate pool called
"bootpool," with a symlink from /boot to /bootpool. Check to see
"bootpool" exists; if so, it's not mounted, which is another problem
that needs addressing. If it doesn't exist, then something has changed
and I have no idea what to do.
