RE: [parisc-linux] NIC & "searching for devices"

Arrrrg. I've been trying to find instructions on "configuring your boot
loader" for an initrd kernel with the hppa version of Debian. When you load
an Intel kernel that needs initrd it tells you very nicely to edit
lilo.conf, what line to insert, etc. Hppa just says "read your bootloader
documentation." I assume I only need to insert --initrd=/initrd.img in
palo.conf since the install of 2.6.8-2-smp automatically created an
initrd.img symlink in /boot for me. Could someone please confirm this for a
dumb newbie. Even better would be a palo.conf for a 2.6 kernel that I could
use as an example. Thanks.

Already reported:

The correct answer is "use 2.6". Recent parisc workstations aren't
supported in 2.4
