 the filename then becomes A0000011.SUN4M.  So, I symbolically linked
 the file:

A0 is 160, 0A is 10.

Sorry for that; I am typing challenged. Also, "Derek Payne" <derekpayne@comcast.net> pointed out that the SS1+ is a SUN4C beast, not a SUN4M and I had originally written. So, once I renamed the file to 0A000011.SUN4C.,

# ls -l
total 14672
-rw-r--r--   1 root     other    3161568 Aug  6 16:18 0A000011.SUN4C
-rw-r--r--   1 root     other    3161568 May 18  2002 tftpboot.img

I seem to be able now to download the kernel to my SS1+,

ok boot net
Probing Memory Bank #: 1 2 3 4 5
Booting from: le(0,0,0)

Unfortunately, it seemed to have frozen up right there. I have left the terminal window I was using as console open for some 6 hours now and no sign of activity. The tftpboot.img file I got was taken from http://ftp.egr.msu.edu/debian/dists/woody/main/disks-sparc/current/sun4cdm/tftpboot.img. Could it have a problem? Could I have screwed things up?
