Re: zx2000 and new firmware

Thanks,  that did it.

I had been using a tes release previously, since 3.0 would not install correctly. Apparently the
new firmware requires 3.0r1.

FYI: The other versions of Linux I have for ia64 will not install with the new firmware either. (They did with the old version) It looks like debian has beat the other distros to a working
system. :)

Thanks again for the pointer.

Does anyone have any ideas where I could get a disk image that would boot on

Any help would be appreciated.
