got to get my sparc lx over to the svlug installfest this month! i'm sure someone there can help me out - i just can't get the damn thing to boot linux . . . now i think it may be my media - it's a cd from linux central, red hat 6.2 for sparc, but i have this odd feeling they screwed up and the cdrom is not sparc-bootable. i can get a recent version of solaris to boot and install . . .
