Oh, yes, it could be IDE driver for the Cypress. I believe someone
else has reported having some issues; I've not seen any personally,
but I have mostly the newest boxes (667MHz), and there may have been
tweaks to the latest mobos that affect this.
As for net installs: YES!
Put the ISO in an NFS-avail directory, and boot like this:
1. b dqa0 -fl "2 askmethod"
2. when it gets to the option screen for NFS/FTP/HTTP:
a) REMOVE THE CD FROM THE DRIVE!
b) specify the NFS server and the directory where the ISO is
Then, everything should proceed normally.
Sometimes it seems quicker, esp. if one normally uses IDE CDROM,
as those drivers default on Alpha to non-DMA, IIRC... :-\
