Can anyone tell me what eeprom locations must be set on a 3/80
to change the default boot path (ie from "vmunix" to something else)?
paul@dragon (Paul E. Silun) [should that be email@example.com?]
gave the required info:
Set location 0x70b to value 12.
06 = normal boot
12 = diagnostic mode
all else = full diagnostic boot
sugested that I could instead do a binary edit of the boot file,
replacing "vmunix\0\0\0\0..." with the new kernel name.
Since the 3/80s will all be booting diskless, I have just hacked the
single file /tftpboot/boot.sun3x.sunos.4.1.1 file, and now they all
get the right kernel file.
Thanks to you both,
