Netbooting a DEC 3000 m300
I'm trying to netboot a DEC 3000 m300 workstation (two in fact)
No floppy, no cd-roms, only Tru64 installed.
I've got the TFTP and BOOTP parts nice. In fact, it starts to boot.
But it dies after:
Linux/AXP bootp loader for Linux 2.2.18pre21
Expected vptb at 0000000200000000, got 0000000000000000
?05 HLT INSTR
PC=00000000,20000014 PSL= 00000000,00001F00
Tried both tftpboot.img from woody and potato, they both look bad.
What am I missing? If all else fails, I have a couple of i386 based machines
around, how can I cross-compile an alpha kernel, wrap it in a tftpboot.img
files (with whatever else is required) and try again?
I don't suffer from insanity; I enjoy every minute of it.
