Re: AS200 4/100 install if fd0 not available?

Hmmm...learned something there...the first digit points to a partition.
0 ==> scd0
1 ==> sda1
2 ==> sda2

However, it won't recognize boot/avanti/linux, even though that will boot
from the SRM console.

Any my newer images are on sdb1, which doesn't seem to be amenable to
any number.  8+ ==> sda9 (which doesn't even exist).

Aboot isn't recognizing anything.  Bummer!

Well, more time to work on it tomorrow...

Thanks, though...
