I don't get it, once you boot into ARC and run MILO you are back at a
command prompt again. So who cares whether someone goes in through ARC or
SRM? I'll tell you who - me. I've never really used the SRM side of the
house - don't have OpenVMS, DigitalUnix or a manual for SRM. So when I
tried to use SRM during my Linux install I found that my monitor would not
work - I thought that I had burned something out at first. Anyways, as a
last resort, I hooked up my other monitor to video port and what do you
know - the box still worked, but not with my other (newer 17inch) monitor.
After banging my head on SRM for a few hours, I decided that I liked my
other monitor better anyway, so I switched to ARC (SRM-"set os nt") and my
previous monitor and all is fine again.
