[boot-floppies init.c patch] Bad PROM

Fabien, such requests should be sent direct to Debian boot.

Eric, did we get this already?

I have got a nice SS10 with 2 processor but the PROM is invalid.
I can boot boot SunOS but Linux don't want :(

The kernel could'nt get the PROM version and halt.

Is there somebody who can compile a kernel for a Debian rescue disk
with this patch applied ?
