Well, I did get the alpha port dd'ed to the hard drive successfully
and the thing boots and even has net access to it (*cheer*),
but I need assistance in how to disklabel the rest of the drive
so I can use it. The drive is a CFP1080S (Conner)
I wouldnt ask for help except I really screwed it up the first time
when I tried it on my own. Also, I have some other questions,
and I apologize in advance for their simplicity. I have been
babied by using BSDI and FreeBSD that set much stuff up for me...
First, anyone written an adduser script? I dont feel too comfortable
adding users by hand. The script I have is written in perl
and there is no perl on this machine (yet).
Second, where do I specify a name server for this machine?
Third, any problems using apache on netbsd for alpha?
Fourth, as a side question does the Multia use standard
72 pin partity simms? I know I could find this out from DEC
but I figured someone here would know as well :)
Anyway, back to the disklabel situation:
Here is what disklabel returns:
total sectors: 823608
headswitch: 0 # milliseconds
track-to-track seek: 0 # milliseconds
# size offset fstype [fsize bsize cpg]
a: 111600 0 4.2BSD 1024 8192 16 # (Cyl. 0 - 199)
b: 111600 111600 swap # (Cyl. 200 - 399)
c: 823608 0 unused 0 0 # (Cyl. 0 - 1475)
d: 600408 223200 4.2BSD 1024 8192 16 # (Cyl. 400 - 1475)
Thanks for everyones help here... I really do appreciate it.
