You can't use MILO on the Jensen. You have to switch to the SRM
console, the boot by 'b <device> -fl i'. To see which <device> holds
CDROM, try 'show dev' first.

On the Aboot prompt, type 'kernels/jensen.gz ro root=/dev/scd0'. If
that doesn't work, report exactly the error you get, plus the firmware
version you use. Also read the apropriate documents concerning the
Jensen, you can access them all via the FAQ, and from my homepage.

If it works, please contribute a paper describing all the details
involved, so its then easiear for others.

Please see the tread "Re: Jensen First install AXP150", just a few
days old on this list.

Good luck, Martin
