[rescue] sunos 2.0 install help?

Does anyone have those printed sheets (or a scan of them) which came
with SunOS 2.0?

I'm trying to do a sunos-2.0 install and it's not working.  I copy the
miniroot to the swap partition
and boot the kernel but it asks for the root device and panics.

note that sunos 3.x and 4.x are different in this regard - they honor
the "sd0b" style partition name.

the sunos 2.0 seems to want to mount sd(0,0,0) no matter what, so I must
be missing args or a step
in the install.

Anyone know the magic?

b st()
copy st(0,0,4) to sd(0,0,1)
b st()
[asks for root device] sd0
