The easiest way to install linux on SPARC computer is to use a
CDROM. If your computer does not have a CDROM you can plug an
external SCSI CDROM drive, but there are two things to do or you
are doomed to fail:
As a rule of thumb, nearly all SCSI CDROM drives can be assigned to ID number
6 but you should check if the block size setting can be changed.
- When you issue the
boot cdrom command, the CDROM is
mapped to ID number 6.
- Your CDROM player's block size should be setted up on 512.
