Dear Friends,
i'am trying to install a Suse linux 7.3 for sparc, but doesn't work.
after the boot from cdrom, appear a SILO boot loader, and after 5 second,
when i pressed [enter], appear a second message:
--------------------------------------------------------------
Uncompressing image...
Loading initial ramdisk...

Remapping the kernel... done.
Booting Linux...
PCI: Bogus PROM assignment. BUS[80] DEVFN[18]
PCI: Phys [02801810:00000000:00000000] size[00000000:01000000]
PCI: RES [0000000001000000-->0000000001ffffff:(200)]

Program Terminated

Ok
---------------------------------------------------------------
and my sparc doesn't boot.
It is a clone sparc selled from Dupont/Stork.
It used as postscript-rip (called RIP-Digital_Cromalin) with an Hi-Fi
ink-jet printer made from Dupont.
Now it is installed Solaris 2.6 and i would like to format its hard-disks
and install linux, because i have knowledge of linux for intel, a i would
like to learn something about linux on sparc hardware.
For complete, i found these information about its configuration:
Ultra AXi System
SPARCengine Ultra AXi Mother Board
Ultra Iii-360 Module for mother board.
SYMBIOS 53C876 on board.
ATI Videoboost w/4MB Graphics adapter
EDO Memory 512 Mb Ram
IBM 9.1 Gb Ultra Wide SCSI
Plextor CDROM
Antares PCI Modem
Can you help me ???

I apologise for my bad english, and thanks again for your time.
