AW: Debian on a Sun Ultra 5

Hi Pete, hi Mr. Zimmermann,
I am quite sure that the OBP will not recognize the SATA disk controller. We use an AHA29160 SCSI controller within an U60; the method of choice for booting is either a CD or a netboot (here). One could alternatively insert a small SCSI / PATA disk to boot from and mount the "real" disks at a later stage.
Bying equipment that is "known" by openboot is fairly expensive and IMHO not neccessary - if one can live with somewhat slower boot-up times via network or (faster!) CD.
Take care

Dieter Jurzitza
