RE: SRM help?

I don't know if this helps at all, but I have a dec alpha 500 pc164 and have
been UNABLE to get it to auto reboot.  Every time I have to type >> boot
dva0  in order for the floppy to be accessed and then booted off of.  My 2
cents.  And if anyone has a solution for my problem well....  that would be
a HUGE bonus for me.   I'm running Debian Potato.

I don't know if there is a delay or much of one in either SRM or aboot.
I just go nuts with the ^C key in SRM (you have to press and release
both the ctrl and C keys for it to work for me) until you get the >>>

Then type something like boot dqa0 -fl i
The -fl i means send the next thing the flag i and i is for interactive.

I've had lots of experience doing this as I have "fun" with the broken
