After a few troubles, I managed to get 1.4.1 installed on my 3000/300x
boxes. Thanks to all for pointers!
A final question. Technically, do these machines run an SRM or the old
VAX PROM? It looks like a hybrid, yet I'm tempted to call it an SRM...
I was able to netboot the machine using SRM 7.0 (thanks to
firstname.lastname@example.org comments on using "vm=rfc1048" on bootptab). I also
had some problems with the SRM security, but figured out how to bypass
this. I've put up a page at http://www.yubyub.net/computers/index.html
(go to DEC Alpha on the left) which has pictures, boot messages, etc... I
plan to put up some tips and jumper descriptions tonight. If anyone has
any other tips or experiences with these boxes, I'd appreciate it if you'd
drop me a line at either address below.
These boxes are beautiful. And so is NetBSD :-)
Thanks again, all!
