ARPA/RARP interface problem Summary

The hard disk was corrupted andthe machine could not boot from it so it
then attempts to boot off the network. If you hold down the stop and a keys
together you can then enter the prom mode, boot off of the CDROM, and
re-isntall the OS.

Good thing I have the data backed up :-).

I have a problem with one of our Ultra 1's. It seems there is somehting
wrong wit h the internal ethernet interface. However when I try to boot-up
I get the standard ARP/RARP timout "Use the PROM command".

What is the PROM command and does someone know how to get out of this loop ?

Greatly appreciated...
