How do I copy linload.exe and a milo image...
... to sda1?
8 months ago I installed a bare-bones Linux on an UDB. I didn't
understand then how to get the machine to boot from the ARC console.
And I tried a bunch of things. I was even having problems trying to
mount the sda1 partition (formatted as msdos16). And if I remember
correctly, I foolishly fsck'ed the partition.
A week ago I turned on the machine again and installed the most recent
distribution. With the 2.0.34 kernel dated July 5. I didn't really
make any changes to the drive configuration. This time around I
included information so that the machine can access the internet. And
I've been successful using dselect over ftp to a Debian mirror.
I can find linload.exe. But how do I copy it and whatever milo image
(.dd?) to the sda1 partition so I can have the machine autoboot? Am I
going to have to reinstall Linux but this time make changes to the size
of the partitions? I haven't been able to mount sda1 as a msdos device.
Should I be able to? And if so, what command should I use?
I can boot the machine fine from the SRM console. But I'd rather have
the dang thing autoboot.
