Amiga and Sarge: any hope to booting off CDROMs
I ordered sarge for 68k from Abexia and wondered how to boot my Amiga
2000HD off them and possibly install it on a spare SCSI drive. I'm having
trouble booting off my boot hard drive and hoped to boot the Amiga with
3.1 floppies and then get the sarge CDROM to boot. I get the impression
that this is a bit more involved than just installing woody on a Gateway
500. (I have woody CDROM's for that arch so obviously I can't use them.)
Is this a total pipedream? Or can I actually do something?
I have a GFORCE 030 with a 68030 on an accelerator card so I'm not stuck
with the Amiga 2000's onboard 68000. The 68030 is not the disabled
version that can't manage memory. I also have a 386 bridgebaord on the
system (I don't guess I could use that?) I also have an Ariadne network
card which should be usable. Would the sarge CDROM's boot procedure see
I'm typing on an unused computer at a group meeting so please
pardon the off-the-top-of-the-head composition!
I'm also interested in using a 2.6 kernel if I can.
