I received many responses from people concerning my query and (I
thought) I had posted a summary. Then I start receiving more messages
telling me the answer (even a phone call - thanks!). I do not know how
it happened, but it seems that instead of a summary I re posted my
original question.... ARGHHHHHHHH!
Thanks to eveyone who responded! The solution to my problem was simple.
The Sparc 20 was trying to boot of the net. I do not know how to boot
prom variables got changes, but they did. Here are some solutions
to the problem:
Hold down the L1 and the 'n' key and pwoer the system up -
this will reset all NVRAM parameters to default.
On 'ok' boot prompt enter 'printenv' command and make sure
If not - set them:
setenv boot-device disk
setenv diag-switch? false
and reboot. You can type:
to explicitly boot of the disk instead of the net and you can type:
to make sure the Sparc sees the disk. If it does not there *may*
be a hardware problem.
Crossing my fingers... hope this will go through.
