I was spying on the install itself.

Anyway I have now cracked it with what seems like a tricky one for newcomer.

Basically with my (Maxtor) drive the restore CD won't load unless you remove
all the jumpers from the drive (which would normally make it a slave).
However, once installed the firmware loader won't find the drive unless you
then put a jumper on the drive to configure it as a master. Have cracked
that all is fine.

Weird but true.

So, you're looking on the Qube serial port after a successful netboot
and install from the cobalt-specific netboot .iso?  Or are you spying
on the install itself?

What exactly is your workflow here?
