Sorry in advance for the long post! I am completely new to pegasos and openfirmware in particular.
I have had some stability problems and therefore I decided to reinstall my system (for the first time ever).
I inserted the CD and tried to boot from the CD from the ok promt in Openfirmware using the commands explained in ThePegasosBook.
Theese commands dos'nt work for me !?!
When I try to type ls /pci/ide/cd I get an error saying the the location dos'nt work.
Then I tried to boot /pci/ide/cd boot.img (and boot.img;1) I get the same error.
When I just type ls. The only thing I get that says something with pci is pci@80000000 og pci@C0000000 in the bottom of a list.
My HD is on the ide1 channel and the cd on ide2.
Eventually I got the system to boot from CD using the "boot" command (nothing more). There I thought things where ok and formatted the Systems partition (stupid me). I tried to reinstall but 1: did'nt make an partition for my boot.img file and 2: got an error saying my RAM is was broken (it is'nt).
A reboot after I now have a system that I can't get to boot from CD!
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
