I'll have to check into that one. Was this after reboot or during install?

This would be a bug in base-config, which I think is getting resolved.

Yes, the latest base-files contains a newer motd. So this wont be a
problem in the released set of boot-floppies.

All of our problems seem to stem from sun4c (more so on IPC than anything
else). What happens if you tell it to boot the linux-a.out file from the
sun4cdm directory in boot-floppies 2.2.10? You can do something like this:
boot le() root=192.168.0.2:/tftpboot/debian-root-sparc/ ip=192.168.0.3
...where 192.168.0.2:/tftpboot/debian-root-sparc/ is an NFS server with
the root.tar.gz tarball unpacked on it. Perhaps the problem is in the
kernel, but I want to make sure
