I CAN'T BOOT!!!!!!!!!
I have a G3/233dt with a SyQuest EZ 135 drive at SCSI id4.
I have installed LinuxPPC/Red Hat (without X) on two Apple_UNIX_SRV2
partitions on a EZ 135 disk.
The root partition is number 5
The swap partition is number 6.
The vmlinux file is in the path: root/boot/vmlinux
I did not have any problems booting from a floppy containing the
g3installer.coff from the Open Firmware interface.
My question is how do I configure "boot-device" and "boot-file" ?
access to comp.os.linux.powerpc from my home ISP provider.
I have looked in"Linux on PowerMac FAQ-O-Matic" and tried all the options I
can think of, but it wont work - Perhaps am I not as smart as I thought
I understand that if I uncheck the "auto-boot option" in "Boot Variables"
and configure "boot-device" & "boot-file correct", I should be able to
choose between MacOS and LinuxPPC at startup be typing ether "boot" or "bye"
in the Open Firmware interface. Am I right?
