Re: boot cdrom single

You need to get to a SILO prompt and issue
"linux single"  (at least that works for me)

# Disables packet forwarding
net.ipv4.ip_forward = 0
# Enables source route verification
net.ipv4.conf.all.rp_filter = 1
# Disables automatic defragmentation (needed for masquerading, LVS)
net.ipv4.ip_always_defrag = 0
# Disables the magic-sysrq key
kernel.sysrq = 0
# Disables stop-a on the sparc  <<-----------
kernel.stop-a = 0
# added by initscripts install on Mon May 15 19:37:38 EDT 2000
kernel.sysrq = 1

Also, I've noticed that STOP-A doesn't work once SILO is loaded and the
kernel is booting.  In Solaris one can STOP-A anytime no matter what
state the software is in.  I thought this was a hardware feature of

Sorry, I'm new to Sun hardware and how it differs between Linux for
