openprom> whereis silo\n
I got a spiffy E450 recently and am trying to use Potato on it. I can
install without problem (at openprom, 'boot cdrom'). It has several
disks, and on the first I delete all partitions (including the ``Whole
disk'') and remake them (Whole disk, root, swap). I run the install
gauntlet, and I follow the step that runs 'silo' at the end.
Upon rebooting (my openprom 'boot-device' variable is set to 'disk'), the
previous SunOS installation begins to boot! I've deleted all other
disks' partitions and ``Whole disk'' partitions (and created bare disks
with one type-83 partition), and even 'dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/hda' (from
SunOS -- grrr). I just tried at openprom 'boot disk0' and it boots SunOS.
I don't want SunOS. SunOS is ugly. SunOS makes me itch.
What must one do to boot SILO? Ideas?
