RE: Problems Installing Debian on a Sparc2
If I have the CDs, ie all three of them, can't I use the rescue, root,
driver1, driver2 floppies to get it to a stage where I can tell it to do the
rest off of the CDs ????
(I haven't really worked out any networking for this comp yet so downloading
the base while installing doesn't sound promising.)
