I have the OpenBSD 2.5 CD Set, and a HP433t. I want to install OpenBSD
on it but I don't know how.
I have read the installation document, but it's not clear on how I must
do the bootstrap process on this machine.
I have OpenBSD on my desktopPC, so I know how to install it on PCs.....
My configuration is: HP433t, video, keyboard, mouse, external floppy, 2
internal SCSI disk (I want to keep HP/UX on them !) and external SCSI
devices (one HD, one CDROM)
What I have done untill now: I have copied the SYS_UBOOT on the external
HD using dd under HP/UX. Then I have booted the system and it boots with
the SYS_UBOOT then it gives me the usual boot prompt and it asks me
where to boot from.
So,after rebooting the system with HP/UX, I copied the bsd.rd with dd on
another external SCSI device (a Syquest cartrige) and I rebooted again.
I gave it the option sdXc: (where X is the ID of the device with the
bsd.rd on it) and it starts booting. It prints some stuff but after that
I have tried copying the SYS_UBOOT on the floppy and the bsd.rd on the
HD but I obtain the same stuff :-(
Now the questions are (I want to do a no net install):
1) Must I use the SYS_UBOOT or another booter?
2) where do I must 'dd' the images and which must I use for them?
3) must I use the bsd.rd image for the installation or something else?
