I assume: - you have the documentation at hand: ftp://ftp.netbsd.org/pub/NetBSD/NetBSD-1.6.1/atari/INSTALL.html - you have more than 6 MB RAM - you want to be able to boot both NetBSD and TOS/GEM on the same disk > I made the hades boot floppy using rawwrite. > I also made the miniroot floppy, since I understood it was > mandatory.

Both things are weird, but since the system seems to boot, let's ignore it for the moment. > I set the root and the dump partition on HDFD0b, with the > miniroot floppy inserted. Here something is wrong... You should re-read the section 'Using loadbsd.ttp'. I guess you should be entering 'md1a' as the root partition, but this depends on your situation. > When the system asks to change the label, this is what I have > a root undefined > b swap undefined > c user undefined > d disk MSDOS > > I set the parameters for a and b (NBD and SWP) but the system > refuses to write when I try to do so.

I have used both et6000 and et6100 in my Hades, but only with TOS/GEM and NetBSD. It worked fine. But if the et6000 is recognized as an et6100, things might go wrong. The initialisation code is different. I am curious about the pci-id's of the cards since that is how they are told apart. Leo.
