Does anyone have any idea why this install stalls at "sym0: SCSI BUS has been reset." Is this a problem people have had in the past? I am interested to hear from people who have successfully installed debian on Netra and A1000. Your help will be much appreciated, As i really want to use debian on this machine. and cannot get anything but Solaris to install. Thankyou so much for ur help :)

The A1000 is not a problem. Debian's primary archive is on an Ultra60
with an A1000 array. I'm willing to bet you have a SCSI termination
issue. Try "probe-scsi-all" at the OBP prompt. If you have problems
there, Linux wont help you.
