Re: Re: debian woody on Z800 help

I finally got the script to work thanks to Stefan Gybas and Tonn
Gerhard.  I wasn't passing the script the kernel version.  Steps to get
the second initrd image were as follows.

1. Download OCO modules from IBM developer works
2. Download mkinitrd2.sh from   people.debian.org/~sgybas
3. Put all files into same directory (don't unzip or untar them)
4. execute script passing it the kernel version "./mkinitrd2.sh 2.4.17"
5. Rejoyce.

I won't know if this works until the os/390 system people get the osa
card defined to the IFL lpar that I'm working on.  This should be about
2 weeks from what they told me.  I might need some more help then.

Thanks Very Much
Doug Griswold
