Description Frank Sweetser 1999-02-22 08:58:41 EST
tried on 2 sparc ipc's, prom versions 1.6 and 2.4.  after
booting, the kernel prints out that the floppy io port
0xfe005000 is already in use just before prompting for
the ramdisk.  the floppy fails to eject. manually ejecting
the boot floppy, inserting the ramdisk, and hitting enter
results in the same error message.  after a couple of tries,
the kernel panics can't mount root FS.
