Yes, the major difference when installing is partitioning the disk(s), Sun disklabel, but it's explained clearly in the install docs. It also helps running ethereal whilst tftp-booting so that you can see which file it's trying to pull (the filename is dependent on the MAC-address) and change the name accordingly if you got it wrong (or, like me, are too lazy to figure it out beforehand). >I'm kinda assuming that once I get Debian installed on it it'll be pretty >much like Debian is on my x86 boxes. Is that the case? or are there any >special 'gotchas' with Sparcs? SILO (the sparc equivalent of LILO) is slightly different to configure than LILO, but that's about it. Oh, and there's no 2.4 kernel-image for sun4m in stable, if you want/need that, you'll have to grab it from unstable. cheers, &rw -- -- "Oh Bother", said the Borg, "We've assimilated Pooh.
