RE: TFTP boot on sparcstation1 locks..
I tried a floppy, before tftp, and it started uncompressing.
It crashed at some point after (there was the '\' of the spinning
bar on the screen..).
I've got another sparcstation, I'm going to try that one.
Perhaps it's a HW problem.
P.S. Just took a look at the sparcstation I was trying.
It's a sparcstation 2..
