svlug installfest today - i lugged the old sparc lx over to see if anyone could help me figure it out. no luck, except that this nice guy - from argentina i think he said? - thought we could boot it via bootp. he wasn't running bootp, so he had to install it and try to configure it . . . i think it can be done with bootp, but i doubt i'll try it until we move and get settled in. i'm convinced now that my linuxcentral sparc red hat 6.2 cd is simply not sparc-bootable.

what i *do* need to play with, though, is jabber. my dad wants to offer a private im service to the paying members of his site, and of course he wants it for free. so, i suggested jabber, and told him i'd set it up and get it all ready for him.
