Thanks a lot.
Hmm, 43p what? Model 7248? I've got a few of those running (and one
lying in the closet without disk and cdrom because I'm testing SCSI on
the AmigaOne. Me bad. Really bad). The last time I checked the boot
floppy didn't work (the infamous scsi bug). This does work, though:
Then grab the root floppy for PReP from Debian and force a floppy boot
from the carolina bootimage.
More information can be found here: (how to boot from floppy etc.)
The kernel source you get from apt-get install kernel-source-2.4.x
compiles just fine on these machines, and the root floppy for PReP
installs via the net for you. Getting a CD is ok as well, but I don't
know how to make a CD bootable for this arch. Start off with those two
floppies, and we'll see if things work.
