PALO is the boot loader for HP PA-RISC machines. This package contains
both the actual boot loader called iplboot as well as a boot media
management tool after which bears the name PALO. While iplboot
can be used on PA-RISC machines only, the PALO media management tool
runs on any architecture and is used to create boot media for
HP PA-RISC machines.
