Hi, Emanuele!

Sorry for the late reply -- I moved, switched jobs, started a new and
much better life... :-)

Yes, I can confirm that. linux-image-2.6.16-2-sparc64 worked well and
without the video=atyfb:off boot parameter.

Yes, it hangs very early in the boot process after the messages:
	Remapping the kernel... done.
	Booting Linux...

No harddisk activity after that, no ssh, no ping echo, no nothing.
