This is my first time working witha  net booting workstation and i'm
having a problem w/ the install kernel booting on a Challenge S.

I saw the mention in the mail archive and attempted to do as it instructs,
but alas, I have had no success.

the kernel says this on boot:
SGI Zilog8530 serial driver version 1.00
Keyboard timeout
Keyboard timeout
tty00 at 0xbfbd9838 (irq = 21) is a Zilog8530
tty01 at 0xbfbd9830 (irq = 21) is a Zilog8530
<snip>
VFS: Mounted root (nfs filesystem).
Adv: done running setup()
Freeing unused kernel memory: 44k freed


and freezes there.


now what i've done regarding the instructions on the web site are:
[root@outland dev]# pwd
/usr/src/sgi/installfs/dev
[root@outland dev]# ls -al tty* console*
lrwxrwxrwx   1 root     root            5 Feb 10 16:16 console -> ttyS0
lrwxrwxrwx   1 root     root            5 Feb 10 16:21 tty00 -> ttyS0
lrwxrwxrwx   1 root     root            5 Feb 10 16:21 tty01 -> ttyS1
crw-------   1 root     root       4,   1 May 11  1998 tty1
crw-------   1 root     root       4,   2 May 11  1998 tty2
crw-------   1 root     root       4,   3 May 11  1998 tty3
crw-------   1 root     root       4,   4 May 11  1998 tty4
crw-------   1 root     root       4,   5 May 11  1998 tty5
crw-r--r--   1 root     root       4,  64 Feb 10 16:16 ttyS0
crw-r--r--   1 root     root       4,  65 Feb 10 16:13 ttyS1


Am I doing something obviously wrong?
