Re: Netinst failing

What about to try complete net installation? So if you can, set up tftp
+ rarp server on your network and than with "boot net" typed into your
open boot prom it is really easy. I've installed in a such way the
Ultra1 with no floppy and cd. It is completely described in Debian
Installation Manual, or have a look at Ultralinux.org FAQ, which are
also useful.

          Good luck.
