Booting Problems from Install CD
When replying to this message, please cc: me, as I'm not subscribed to
I am attempting to install Debian 3.0 on a Sparc IPX that lacks a floppy
drive. As I don't have root access to any other Sparcs, I cannot setup
a TFTP server for boot net. So, logically, I decided that the best way
to install Debian would be to burn a bootable CD. The only problem is
that the CD lacks vmunix, and I don't know where to find an image of CD
1 that really is bootable... (I used jigdo to get the first group of ISOs.)
The error that caused me to determine the problem was a magic number
error after typing "boot cdrom" at the ok prompt.
So, if anyone could help me, I would appreciate it very much...
