Okay, I can load the linux-a.out image. The tftpboot.img image however
hangs at:
Boot device: /sbus/le@0,c00000   File and args:
Booting Linux...

Maybe I'm misremembering using the tftpboot image last time I loaded this

The linux-a.out image is wanting to mount root on NFS... So I'll need to
figure out how to do that.


I will be switching my email addresses from @ferret.dyndns.org to
@mail.aom.geek on or after September 1, 2001, but not until after
Debian's servers include support. 'geek' is an OpenNIC TLD. See
http://www.opennic.unrated.net for details about adding OpenNIC
support to your computer, or ask your provider to add support to
their name servers.
