Try: >>> b dka0 -fi 1/boot/kernel-file.gz -fl root=/dev/sda1
If that doesn't work because aboot isn't installed, then boot from CD again
(and mount root=/dev/sda1 to skip the install) and then do a "swriteboot
/dev/sda /boot/bootlx" and try again. Note: if you haven't partitioned
properly, you could destroy a filesystem by doing this.
There are some SRM install docs on http://www.alphalinux.org somewhere.
Some are dated, but still helpful.
