Re: Sarge/beta-3 on a RS6000/43P-150 (PPC 604e, CHRP)?

Hi Patrick, Luther, all

I'm trying the same on a 7025-f50 box.
Till now I've burned the file
vmlinuz-chrp-rs6k-di-beta3-2004.03.16 on a CD using
ISO format - therefore file named vmlinuz (I'm not
sure if other formats will boot)
On the OF prompt:
0> boot cdrom:\vmlinuz devfs=mount

Boot started and I entered into the "graphical" mode.
(First time at this level of installation after 2
weeks of experiments).
I'm now stuck in loading the drivers for the network
card and other devices - missing ncr53c8xx

I might use the driver-1.bin, driver-2.bin, but I
don't know how to mount it
# mount -r -t ext2 /dev/floppy /tmp/mnt
returns "Block device required"

Thanks in advance.
