I don't know about *all* of Red Hat's products (or any third-party
copies for that matter), but the install CD in Red Hat Linux/Alpha 4.0
*is* bootable via SRM. It comes up into aboot, from which one may then
install the rest of the system.
On the other hand, there is a problem with either aboot or the compressed
kernels on the 4.0 CD such that aboot can't boot them... it complains
about "unknown compression method".
Since I have both a Jensen and a CD-burner and I was eager to install
RH4.0 on the Jensen, I created a "special" version of the RH4.0 CD
with uncompressed kernels as well as all the Jensen goodies from azstarnet.
I was able to install from this CD just fine.
I am willing to make a LIMITED number of copies of this CD for Jensen
owners who would like to install RH4.0 on their systems. Because
burning a CD is a bit of a pain (I can only do it at 1x speed under
Windoze 95) I'd prefer to *lend* these CDs out rather than give them
away. In addition to making it easier on me, it will encourage you
to buy a copy of RH4.0 for your own archival purposes, thus providing
support to a worthy endeavour 8-)
If anyone would like to borrow a copy of this CD, email *ME* (NOT the
axp-list) with your shipping address, and I'll see what I can do...
