Subject: Help w/ 2006.0 on Ultra5
Date: Fri, 14 Jul 2006 17:11:17 -0700
Sorry for the cruft, but I'm having an issue and I'm not exactly sure
how to solve it.

 I have an old Ultra5. It came without a hard drive so I dug up an old
100g drive and installed that in it. (Jumpered as Cable Select) Added
in my quad ethernet card as this will be a firewall once I get it
working.

 When I partitioned it, I created the Sun Disk Label and made the following.

 /dev/hda1  /   (512mb)  ext2
 /dev/hda2 swap (512mb) swap
 /dev/hda3 whole disk
 /dev/hda4 /usr (15g) ext3
 /dev/hda5 /var (15g) ext3
 /dev/hda6 /home (rest) ext3

I followed the 2006.0 doc and when it comes to the edit the fstab
portion, this is where I get confused. In there it wants a line for
/dev/BOOT but I don't have a /boot partition. Should I have created a
/boot partition? I was under the impression that the first partition
needed to be / .

I get through the doc and make my fstab without putting in a /boot
line (removed it) and reboot the machine and it comes up saying "The
file just loaded does not appear to be executable."

 However the kernel file in /boot is executable.   And is under the
3.5m for a 2.4 on 64bit system.


 Can someone please point me in the right direction as to what I'm
doing wrong?

 Many thanks.
  Chris
