We think we have ruined the image that comes with the SC or something
but we were trying to install Debian Linux on this V240. On the OBP we typed
/ok boot new linux root=/dev/nfs nfsroot=10.1.3.1:/mnt/iso
This looks to me like the serial port settings that the kernel is using are wrong. I don't remember what speed the ALOM uses for the serial port but it is probably one of 19200, 9600 or 115200 as above.

It uses 9,600 by default. But we'd tried changing it to 19,200 but it didn't make any difference.
Its a long time since I used a V240 so you may have to play around to find the right settings.
The settings are documented in Documentation/serial-console.txt in the Linux kernel sources. See
