Re: Re: Some help needed to install Lenny on the Intel SS4000-E nas

This post http://lists.debian.org/debian-arm/2009/07/msg00058.html links to
the install instructions at

There seems to be an error in this latter link. The serial line settings are
115200, 8-bit, no parity, flow-control=none.

The cntrl-c after 'fis load rammode', 'g', doesn't work on the board I have
(an EM-7220 in a Freestor 4020 which is an SS4000-E lookalike). The boot
message to break with cntrl-c never comes up so it just runs on without the
chance to set the ip etc. It hangs up eventually.

-Hangs here-

Also the first load command 'load -v -r -b 0x01800000 -m ymodem ramdisk.gz'
in the link - should this be initrd.gz instead of ramdisk.gz?

There seem to be numerous versions of initrd.gz and zImage about. Can anyone
point at a set they got to work?
