The rx23 works as a boot device, the only thing is that there isn't
any available diskimages yet. I've made a bootable diskette on my
VS3100m76, and there isn no problem to boot from it. Putting the
tape bootimage on a 1.44 mb floppy also works, but since the=20
install kernel doesn't have SCSI-support that won't be of much use :-(

-Ragge, can you compile a installkernel with SCSI in it also?
