Do you want to use setup_harddisks or the (newer) setup-storage to achieve this?

You're mixing formats here. bootable:3 is only supported by setup-storage, but
the rest rather looks like setup_harddisks style. In the latter case you should
rather say 

primary /boot 500 rw,errors=remount-ro ; boot -c -j ext3

to achieve this.
