Booting Linux on a SS2 with broken EPROM

HI all,
	sorry to disturb this list again but the linux kernel mailing
list seems populated by people that don't care that much about problems

Like I told them I've this sparc s 2 that had a broken IDPROM.

Solaris and NetBSD deal with that simply reporting an warning.

Why Linux simply halt the machine??? is there any specific reason??
How can I override the problem??

The error I get immediatly after the kernel is uncompressed:

IDPROM: invalid format type!

and then the machine switch again to the openboot cli.

I don't think I can replace the EPROM with a new one (are still

Thanks a lot

Debian GNU/Linux Unstable Kernel 2.4.9
