The server was sent to me with the right operating system media (SINIX-P 5.41 A10) but without the boot floppy. I think that I cannot go to the PROM monitor through sash without that floppy.<P>Can you provide me some information about the files that are required in that floppy? I can try to build one using my SPARC workstation or my Unix-based laptop! I can extract the operating system files from the three streamer tapes from the SPARC box and, I hope, to build a bootable one!<P>I am interested in a most recent release of SINIX for that server (an old RM600-xx) too.<P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR><BR><B><BR>EKS can be found at: <A HREF="http://its.siemens.de" TARGET=_blank>http://its.siemens.de</A> somewhere below technical information.<BR></B><HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P>I only found the EKS for the release 5.42,<BR>not for the release 5.41. But in the FAQ I found that patches for SINIX-P 5.41 was available some time ago.<P>I am the maintainer of all the binary distributions of tcpdump (a network monitor) and libpcap for Unix, and I am contributing to the development of some binaries of C-Kermit with Columbia University, NY. This server will be useful for the development of these free-available tools, and I have spent a lot of money in the transport to Spain.<P>Cheers,<BR>Igor.<P>-- <BR>Igor Sobrado, UK34436 - sobrado@acm.org<BR>
