locking while booting from floppies
I've got a sparcstation 5 that I am trying to install debian on. I am
connecting to the sparc with a serial console.
I have created the boot floppy from rescue.bin and asked it to boot from the
floppy. The sparc starts to boot from the disk that I have made and finally
comes up with:
floppy0: WARNING disk change called early
VFS: Insert root floppy disk to be loaded into RAM disk and press ENTER
I insert the root disk and press enter but nothing happens. It just seems to
lock up, I can't even send a BREAK to it. Can anyone shed any light on what's
going wrong, and more importantly, how I can fix the problem?
I hope that someone can help me, and if I can give any more useful info then
let me know as its the first time I've ever used a mailing list.
thanks in advance,
