Re: Ultra Sparc thoughts

I tried to boot the rescue disk from the debian-sparc archives without

After a <stop a>, I did a "test floppy" which reported success, so I guess
I installed the floppy drive correctly ;-)

When I tried "boot floppy" I got the following:

Boot device: /pci@1f,400/ebus@1/fdthree
Fast Data Access MMU Miss

and I'm back at the OK prompt :-(

There is also a tftpboot.img file that looks promising if I can get an
Ethernet card into my Linux box (which is beginning to look manditory)

Any ideas about the boot floppy would be helpful,
