Re: ES40 bombing now

G'day Michael,

*nod* will do a re-install off the 3.0 cd tonight. I still have
that somewhere tonight then see if I can do as you've suggested.
See how that goes.

You might try copying a 4.0 or 5.0 kernel onto your 3.99 root and boot that kernel. If that does boot, then out can put the installation kernel
(alpha/installation/instkernel/netbsd.gz) and boot from that kernel.  That
would give you an installation kernel same as you would get booting from the CD. If that boots, you should be able to install from the sets on the CD.
