Sorry to do a follow-up this late, but I had the opportunity to test a
d-i daily build netinst CD (2006-12-15) on a DEC Personal Workstation 433au
(ATAPI CD-ROM) and on a 600au (SCSI CD-ROM).
Both booted the installer without setting any option. Maybe the reporters
had boot_osflags variables set inside the SRM environment? These old values
would have been overridden by the "-fl 1".
BTW, I can install-test an AS4100 as well, did somebody try this lately?
