AFAIK, sparc bootloader is called silo, and it's configuration file
located under /etc/ :
Thanks for that. Yes, I knew that but I have no idea where the actual bootloader is esp. in my configuration which is a messed up dual-boot configuration even though the bootloader may or may not be aware of it. I think since Silo is able to read / boot off of SunOS disks, the bootloader is still sitting on that partition but I don't know how to find it. I needed to check something in it but I don't need to touch it right now. I wonder though how this will work when I need to upgrade the kernel. The changes for that need to be written in the /boot directory and maybe in Silo.conf and if the upgrade will know where to find that
Any more help would be appreciated.
