Hi!

I installed OBSD on a Sparc IPX. After installing and booting the machine
stops in the OptPrompt with the message:

File just loaded
File doesn't appear to be executable

Can someone give me a hint?

I have got this on two occasions:
- forgot to install the boot block
- dead or dying disk drive

maybe bad SCSI cabling or termination could cause it as well

I guess its more the first one, because I just installed Solarix 2.7 some
weeks ago. How do I install the bootblock with OBSD? I mean I just did the
normal OBSD Installation.

Anyone experienced a simular problem? Any suggestions?
