Keywords:
It is sort of in the BOOTDISK Howto

What I did (which may be foolish) is to take the boot disk that works
at the initial boot prompt type

#boot:  mount aha152x=0x340,11,7,1 root=/dev/sda1 lock

the "lock" locks this onto the floppy

the SCSI howto and the BOOTdisk howto have the exact syntax

now you can boot from the floppy!

If you update the kernel, mount the floppy

mount /dev/fd0 /mnt

cp zImage to the /mnt

umount /mnt

and your floppy now has the new kernel.

Unfortunately, you need the floppy to boot as the BIOS does not recognize
the ADAPTEC you have.

I think there is some info that comes w/ the product that tells you how to avoid
this, but I dont remember exactly where it is.  Basically what you do is rename
you machine localhost, install WP, and rename it back to the original.  WP will
then use the loopback device and all will be happy.  

Another thing you can do is to look at the license.dat file and change the string
tigger.(none) into localhost with a text editor, and reboot or restart the license
manager.

All this assumes that you have tcp/ip compiled into the kernel and you have
networking set up to use the loopback device.  To see if you do, start up X,
and type in an xterm:

xhost +
setenv DISPLAY localhost:0
xclock

If a clock pops up you have thing set up correctly.  If not you need to set up the
loopback device.  I will be glad to help you with this if you do not know how.
