The boot options that are set during installation are added to your bootloader's config file. /proc/cmdline is created during the boot process and is apparently nothing that the user can edit.

If you're using lilo the options are set in lilo.conf, and if you are using grub they are in menu.lst.  I think in either case the file is found in the boot directory on the same partition as DSL

Hello Again,
I checked out /proc/cmdline and I did find an error in there.
The very last thing on the line is myd so it looks to me like the line has been cut off some how. (or perhaps I just stopped typing :) )

I am using lilo so I went and found lilo.conf.
I found a link to lilo.conf  /etc.  I checked the contents of the file and it seems very different to /proc/cmdline and I couldn't see any of my boot options in there.  

I'll keep looking.  But I'm still open to sugestions.
