On 15-Dec-97 Doug Eckert spoke unto us all:
#      I've been trying to boot from the floppy on my 166MHz Multia with no 
#      success.  I go through all the ARC console menus to "Boot alternate 
#      OS", and regardless of which one I choose, it tells me I need to 
#      reboot the machine.  So I do.  It always comes up to the ARC console.
#      What am I doing wrong?

Wrong console.. you need to set the multia to use the srm console, then use
"boot -flags 'a' dva0" at the >>> prompt.
