Saga of the installation of NetBSD on a Sparc 2


I've not abandoned the project.  In fact I sacrificed a weekend 
to stay at work and spent the afternoon of October 24 trying to 
net install to the new disk on the SS2.  At the end of last 
July the Debian server worked with no problems.  Now the SS2 
reports no RARP response; it can't get its IP address.

root@dalton:~# ps aux | grep rarpd
root 2977  0.0  0.1   1672   272 ? Ss   Oct28   0:00 /usr/sbin/rarpd -e -v

Seems right.  I wonder whether the rarpd or a security feature 
has changed in the numerous updates of Debian since July.  
Unfortunately netbooting NetBSD from Debian isn't commonplace 
and I can't expect anyone to duplicate my observation.

Would be helpful to confirm that RARP works on localhost.  Is 
this possible in Linux?

Thanks,          ... Peter E.
