Subject: [gentoo-alpha] AlphaStation 200 (Mustang) won't boot 2004.3 liveCD

I have an AlphaStation 200 4/166 (Mustang) and I'm trying to do a gentoo
install. I can't get it to boot.

1. I have the minimal LiveCD install-alpha-minimal-2004.3-r1.iso.
2. MD5s check out.
3. CD Burn verified OK.
4. Firmware updated to V7.0 (was X5.0, I think)

What happens:

1. power on computer
2. >>> show dev
dka400.  DKA400  RRD43  1084
3. >>> boot dka400 -flags 0
(boot dka400. -flags 0)
block 0 of dka400. is a valid boot block
aboot: no disklabel found.
iso: Max size 27007   Long zone size: 2048
iso: First datazone:40   Root inode number 8190
aboot: loading uncompressed /boot/gentoo...
aboot: loading compressed /boot/gentoo...
aboot: zero-filling 644040 bytes at 0xfffffc0000828c40
aboot: loading initrd (1222017 bytes/1193 blocks) at 0xfffffc0007d0e000
oboot: starting kernel /boot/gentoo with arguments root=/dev/ram0
init=/linuxrc looptype=zisofs loop=/zisofs cdroot

4. System hangs there.

Note:  the 'oboot' at the end is *not* a typo.

Thanks in advance!
