My Indy has seen the light ;-). The kernel boots and goes it's way
through the device checking. All disk's are recognized and the
mount-request for the root-file-system is send to the server. The
(root)-dir is mounted from the Indy. (I can see this in the server-log)
Then the prom-memory is freed and the last thing I see is:
freeing unused kernel memory 52k
Then nothing happens anymore. I think the next thing to come should be
the 'init' process (init doesn't need to be an ECOFF - exec ?).
Or do I nedd a modified init to jump into setup?
