Broken ARC. I'm trying to flash SRM to use *BSD or Linux.

up1100 has similar jumper(s). I tried failed-safe mode ... will try
again with different configurations then.

>What is an mmj cable?
Oh, that is for srom(DEC's mmj interface) serial communication. I read
somewhere ... when firmware is broken, it is only possible connection to
recover firmware. Can I just use com1 instead of this?
Maybe I'm missing something very fundamental. It is hardly to occur
getting three boards with same symptom at the same time, isn't it?
Anyone knows about documentation other than manuals from Samsung, and
DEC. Is Alpha Processor Inc.'s documentation same as others? I need some
quality documentation (the 164lx manual is wrong some places)
Any idea will be appreciated.
