Re: Debian on a Alphaserver 1200

Hello there!

sh dev say for the cdrom: (connected to the NCR0, NCR 53C810 card)
dka500.    DKA500       RRD46         1337

I'm using the netinst CD I got from: http://www.phy.olemiss.edu/debian-cd/
(I got that link from http://www.debian.org/CD/netinst/)
How do I get at the aboot prompt???? Like I said, I'm very new at the Alpha and I got
it last friday, and I haven't read all of the User's Guide yet :)

Greetings, Angelo

I'm totally new on Alpha, but I got this Alphaserver 1200 (one CPU version) and I'm trying to install Debian on it. But after the reboot when I give the command "boot dka500 -flags 0" it returns with the following error-message: * dka500. has no media present or is disabled via the RUN/STOP switch (this message 4 times)
* failed to open dka500.

What does

show dev

tell you when you are in SRM? Also I recommend during testing to use
-fl "i"

and list the available options in aboot.conf via
on the aboot-prompt.

Are you using the new debian-installer or are you using the
boot-floppies from woody?
