Hi All;

I have a DEC Alpha 2100A and I'm trying to install NetBSD 1.6. 
I am getting a 
panic vga_common_setup
can't map memory

On the advice of a nice guy on this message list, I tried to get a crood-over serial cable and use the console for installation (so I could unplug the screen and Kbd)

The probelm is, there is no serial port.

My next idea is to install it via NFS, BUT there is no OS on the DEC. How can I do a network install using only the SRM command.

Any ideas??

Thanks a mil once again.
