I am trying to get 2004.3 to boot on a G5 compute node over an external firewire cdrom and have been running into some troubles. I've gotten yaboot to start but it eventually gets to a point where I get an error message: 'The root block device is unspecified or not detected' This comes after asking me to pick a keymap.

Does anyone have some ways around this?

dunno, maybe, I've heard of problems with that sort of thing though, unless you need to do that I'd say you'd be better off finding a different way to do it

I'm open for suggestions about getting it up with something other than the external firewire drive (compute nodes don't come with internal cdroms).

Would it be possible to do a netboot style boot on the iso?
