i use mopd to boot a DECserver 300, but I'm not sure what type of
processor that uses.
What version of the OS do you have running on your sparc? I know that
somewhere between 1.4 and 1.4.3, mopd was broken. I haven't tried to see
if the problem exists in the 1.5 branch or -current. Have you tried
running mopd with the '-d' flag to run it in the foreground in debug mode?
