What happens is that RMGR tries to load the ramdisk image as a program
which cannot work as it's a ramdisk. The rmgr command line is
missing a 'modname "vmlinuz" module', so make it:

kernel (hd0,0)/boot/drops/rmgr -sigma0 modname "vmlinuz" module

now RMGR should not try to load it.

This bit was also missing on the webpage, I just corrected it.

I think the hang relates to this, so I'll just hope it'll go away
too. :)
