SRM Firmware Howto
v0.5, 17 August 1996
This document describes how to boot Linux/Alpha using the SRM
firmware, which is the firmware normally used to boot DEC Unix.
Generally, it is preferable to use MILO instead of aboot since MILO is
perfectly adapted to the needs of Linux. However, MILO is not always
available for a particular system and MILO does not presently have the
ability to boot over the network. In either case, using the SRM
console may be the right solution.
