Hm, Debian has no IRIX-style installation tools. What should happen:
- the firmware variable OsLoadPartition is set to scsi(0)cdrom(X),
with X being the CDROMs SCSI-id. (After that, available bootfiles
can be listed with the "ls" command, those should be "r4k-ip22"
- The OsLoader variable points to one of those bootfiles.
- The bootfile is executed and starts the installer.
The problem is, the firmware expects a bootfile with the name
"sashARCS" for an automatic startup of the installation. You can
work around it by typing at the firmware prompt:
setenv OsLoadPartition scsi(0)cdrom(X)
setenv OsLoader r4k-ip22
Could you retry with this method?
