First, than you and others for the efforts on the Magnum. I finally had a chance to test it on my Bull DPX/Prostation M-20 and had a few comments. My machine BTW is a rebadged Magnum 3000.
I have 64Mb of ram(4Mx16), but it looks like only 32 were detected.
I have my floppy disconnected, and I get the floppy Interrupt repeating every time I boot.
The NVRAM M48T02 in my machine was dead, so I removed it, and the machine didn't boot. With my dead NVRAM, my ethernet hardware address is set to 00:00:00:00:00:00 and that seems to be a problem with my bootpd. I ordered a new NVRAM chip, and it should be here next week, but does anyone know how to set the MAC address? I have RiscOS running on that machine if that helps. I booted netbsd using sash.
I'm looking forward to getting the userland stuff.
