Has anyone managed to install Debian Etch on one of these? It is a 64 bit
chrp architecture RS/6000 with a Power 3 processor.

I am using the "netinst" CD. It boots OK and I can respond to the initial
prompt. It Prints "Elf64 kernel loaded..." and halts with LCD code E15B
which is "transferring control to OS".

The machine has no video card, I am using a serial console. According to
the manual the installer should detect this. I have tried "console-ttyS0"
with no effect.

The firmware is quite old (SPX99027) but it runs AIX 5.3 OK. Is upgrading
it likely to help?

TIA, Ian
