RE: Debian Linux on Sun UltraSparc IIi

hi again

... it looks to me like the SPARC is trying to boot from the network, as
Christopher said, hit Stop+A or Ctrl+Break to get yourself a prompt. On the
Sparc here, I have to type "n" for new command mode", and then "boot /fd" to
boot from the floppy ...
