I have Linux on the disc with ID 0. If I type "boot /sbus/esp/sd@0,0"
(or various equivalents) I get "Bad magic number in disk label".

Is SILO not capable of installing whatever magic the PROM demands? Is
it possible to tell the PROM not to be so fussy?


PS. Any clues about how to get X to work? Can anyone e-mail me an
example XF86Config or tell me how to find out what video card I have?
It's a SPARCstation 2. There's another one with a different video card
that I could swap, if necessary ...
