Don't even attempt to install potato on a Blade. You will have about as
much luck as you would shooting shooting flies from 100 hundred yards
with a paperclip.

Use woody. There's a netinst.iso image in the disks-sparc/current/

Thanks for the reply.

I downloaded and burned the netinst.iso from http://auric.debian.org/~bcollins/disks-sparc/current/netinst.iso.

It boots the SunBlade 100 to the "boot:" prompt, and I can type "help" and get a help screen, but if I just press ENTER to start the install, I get the message "Fast Data Access MMU Miss" followed by the "ok" prompt.

This machine has a winpci card if it matters.

Thanks for any help!
