Re: Successfull Etch install on a Multia

Good morning, all.

After months of not touching it, seeing the listserve alive with content
regarding the Multia has caused me to pull mine back out and attempt a
clean boot and install of my own.

I continue to have issues that I saw a while ago.

When I reach the point where aboot starts, the machine hangs at the
"aboot: starting kernel boot/vmlinuz with arguements ramdisk_size=16384
root=/dev/ram devfs=mount,dall"

the version of SRM I am running is BL5 V3.8-3 Aug 10 1995
the configuration of the system is as follows;

DKA0     ST39173N    <9gb scsi drive, id0>
DKA100   ST318418N   <18gb scsi drive id1>
DKA500   Iomega Jaz 2gb drive
DKA600   Toshiba XM-6201TA scsi cdrom

I have a valid install of Debian on the 9gb drive now, but it's an older

I never have been able to get the system to boot completely off of a
31r<X> cd. it always stops in the same place.

I have also tried different hard drives, and different cdroms.
I am attempting a standard install <keyboard/monitor/mouse> vs a serial

The system has 128MB ram.

I have no attachment to any OS or information on the system and am happy
to use it as a test machine, etc.
