Hi!

I've put together a kernel and want to test it. My problem is to boot  
it at all... Some time ago, the box did bootp as one would expect. Of   
course, nothing was changed;) , and now bootp doesn't work;( 3 requests,
3 replys, but the machine seems to not take the replys:

May 27 02:38:23 parkautomat inetd[192]: /usr/sbin/bootpd: exit signal 0xf

May 27 02:42:16 parkautomat bootpd[5943]: setarp 192.168.1.3 - 08:00:69:06:BA:2E

(except the heading 4 lines, I get the above 3 times)

SGIIndogo:bf=vmlinux:\ 
        :td=/tftpboot:\
        :hd=/tftpboot:\
        :ht=ethernet:\
        :sm=255.255.255.0:\
        :ha=08006906BA2E:\
        :ip=192.168.1.3

However, I NFS-copied the kernel image. Any chance of starting it instead
of /unix (there is IRIX5.2 installed)? How do I do that?
"cp /vmlinux /unix" isn't a good solution, is it???

Btw, is linux@cthulhu.engr.sgi.com down?

MfG, JBG
PS:  I was quite a bit surprised that PROM console with IRIX worked just
     at the first try. I expected some more spectacular problems;)
PPS: No need for NFS-root right now -- first I need a running kernel...
