Ok.. /boot shouldn't exist. Two problems still stand with the latest boot-
1. DHCP doesn't work correctly, all the information is recieved, the
interface goes up, the route's are correct, but no DNS. No matter what
I do. I checked /etc/resolv.conf, nothing there. The information is in
/tmp/resolv.conf but even if I manually set up the device afterward it doesn't
work. It works fine if I set it up manually the first time with the same info
as it recieves from the DHCP server.
2. SILO still does not work. I think it may have to do with the way I was
partitioning the drive. It would not work without a Whole Disk partition
though that isn't mentioned in the documentation. Now it claims to be successfull
but can't create a boot floppy and when I reboot is says it can't read /vmlinuz.
My original partition scheme was this.
1 ext2 /boot
2 swap LinuxSwap
3 ext2 /
I changed it to this:
1 Boot ???
2 swap LinuxSwap
3 Sun Whole Disk
4 ext2 /boot
5 ext2 /
Is there something I'm missing in the install guide....
