I'm using Linux (Suse 6.0, Kernel 2.2.0) as bootp, nfs and tftps server
in order to boot my decstation 5000/125 over network.
I try to boot (Ultrix 4.5 vmunix) with this command:
The decstation gets a correct ip adress and sends a tftp request to get
the boot kernel.
Then the decstation stops booting with an error message:
"?IO: 3/tftp, a.out (-5)"
I think, that the vmunix kernel is to big. But where can I can get a
smaller kernel ?
I also tried to boot nfsnetbsd.ecoff (NetBSD 1.3.3), which doesn't work.
My decstation has prom revsision KN02-BA V5.7e.
Thanks a lot for any help.
