Thanks to Adam Kirby for being the first to point out that there should be a
space in the command "boot net - install" - just goes to show that when
you're copying and pasting from a list of commands, it's important to make
sure your documentation doesn't have any typos!

Subject: V100 remote install problems


I am trying to install Solaris 8 2/02 on to a V100. I am using a V120 as the
install server.

When I issue "boot net -install", I get the output shown below.

Thanks in advance for any help, I will summarize as soon as the problem is

ok boot net -install
