Re: Debian 3.0 on Netra X1, installs but won't run

Nope, it's not a Sparc thing, it's an IDE thing. Maybe it depends on the motherboard, but just last week I was building a OpenBSD box out of spare parts that wouldn't boot because the CD on the second IDE was jumpered as a master.

Is this specific to the Sparc implementation, or have I always been
doing things wrong?

That may be your problem right there. If nothing else is on the controller, it shouldn't be a master.

Yank all the master/slave/cable select jumpers off and give that a shot.
