Anyone know sun sparcstation5

By colin_mckevitt ·
Hello folks

I've got my hands on a Sun Sparcstation5 and am being presented with a login screen. I know nothing about UNIX but am wanting to learn LINUX and was hoping to install this on the Sparc.

Can anyone tell me how I would go about reseting the machine or breaking into the login script so that I can let the CD drive I have run a bootable CD.

Please help it is a lovley bit of kit to sit there doing nothing.

COL

This works on some Spac stations but I don't know if it will work on a 5 or not.

Start the system up and use the Stop button then type a (Stop - a)

Place the cd in the drive and type

boot cdrom

and you should be able to install from your cd and go from there. Alternatively, some sparc stations will automatically check to see if there is a bootable cd in the drive and will run from there if it is.
