Hi there! I have a quick question, does the prom monitor only show valid,
bootable devices on startup? I have a CD-ROM and an old quantum harddrive
plugged in, but they aren't listed, all I get is:
System Search Mode
RESET To Restart, SPACE clears input Select System, type RETURN ?
Select System, type RETURN
The harddrive is outta an old PC, and it's just some old data disc in the
CD-ROM drive, there really isn't anything to boot there yet. What I need
to do is either build a filesystem on the harddrive, or get rbootd up on
another computer and plug in the ethernet, right? I was just wondering,
the docs make it sound like I'm supposed to pick something out of a list.
