Re: howto setup an install server..
Ok, I have compiled my kernel. I boot using rarp and bootp.
Now, I'm booting with:
"boot net ip=rom"
boot is ok, but it cannot open a console.. probably cause root is readonly
mounted...? how can I make it works? root=ram don't seem to work..

Hmm... I think the only way to boot Sparcs is by using
rarp and bootparamd.
Therefore, on your bootserver install rarpd, bootparamd, tftpd and nfsd.
Compile a sparc kernel with autoconfig and nfsroot enabled in the
network options. Then make it so that the tftp request finds the kernel.
(i.e. arrange a symlink in /tftpboot )
