Umm it's a boot loader, you have to do some hacks to get
/etc/kboot.conf sync'd (maybe shared /boot and I imagine but you

When petitboot starts, it will try to find existing Linux
installations, by looking for /etc/kboot.conf, /etc/yaboot.conf or
/boot/petitboot.conf files on any storage device connected to the
system. Each discovered device will appear on the left-hand pane of
the screen, and bootable options appear on the right.
