installing NetBSD on a Sparcstation 2.
At 1530843 bytes, the 5.0.2 Sparc installer disk2
is too big to fit on a diskette. I see these
choices for installing on the Sparc 2.
* Try to make and use the NetBSD-5.1RC3 Sparc
* Use a CD.
I have a Yamaha Model CRW4260tx external SCSI
drive. I have Debian but no working NetBSD
system. I can try to compile mksunbootcd in
a Debian system, make a 5.0.2 CD and try to
boot the Sparc 2 from the Yamaha drive.
According to sparc/INSTALL.* the drive might not
is cited in */sparc/INSTALL.* but does not exist.
* Remove the internal drive containing the swap
partition, connect it to a Debian system and
attempt to install the bootable file system.
If that works, reinstall the drive and proceed
with the installation.
Anyone care to suggest which of these options is
liable to be the most efficient? Or perhaps I
should say "the least dicey".
Thanks, ... Peter E.
Carnot is down, waiting for installation of NetBSD.
