Re: [newbie] Install/Boot problem
As a quick idea:
Parameter name Value Default
/* cut */
auto-boot? true false
boot-device disk3:a disk net
The boot device is id3, first partition.
The system default for autoboot was to check disk first (disk is an alias
for a scsi id) and if that didnt work, boot from the network.
ok setenv boot-device disk
boot-device = disk
another printenv will show the boot device has been changed.
Check the OBP manual.. it provides plenty more detail on this !
hope this helps
