[OpenIndiana-discuss] Migrating to smaller root pool

I'm trying to migrate to a smaller root pool so I can put /export in a RAIDZ1 and use a 3 way mirror for the root pool. So far I've been soundly thrashed. I copied the rpool contents over to npool w/ "zfs send -R" and installed grub. When I boot the new disk, grub comes up with the menu, but then complains it can't find the filesystem. I used a dedicated Solaris disk and a 100 GB s0 slice.
This is an existing system that I don't want to rebuild, so the way I built my N40L won't work until I get the first bootable pool.
Hints or suggestions? This is very similar to doing a bare metal recovery, so I have a strong interest in figuring this out.
