lifimage boot issues
OK, humor me... I managed to burn the lifimage from the site to CD and
in the boot config list, there is an entry #2 - ip=bootp. How do I
change this to point to the CD as the image source? If I set the proper
kernel, it WILL boot, but it gets to a point where it's looking for a
bootp (tftp host, I'm guessing). This entry was never in the Lenny
net-boot discs, so I'm at a bit of a loss here, and there doesn't seem
to be anything in the documentation about it. If I change that entry to
anything else (i.e. 'local', 127.0.0.1, etc.), it errors out and says
'Couldn't grok your kernel executable formatERROR: failed to load
kernel'. I'd really like to get this machine back up and running at some
point. A little help, please? I don't have another machine on my network
that I can do tftp from, so that idea is out. Anybody have any ideas,
solution, etc.? Thanks.
BTW, I'm working with a J6750 workstation (SMP 64 bit)...
