Alpha boot problems.



BCC Again. on Alpha 2100 A500MP.
Loaded Redhat 6.2
> boot dka600 -fi /Kernels/generic.gz -fl root=/dev/scd0

Did a custom install and partitioned sda1 root "/"
sda5 "swap"
sdb1 /home

It all looked good as it installed ...
Now we are trying to boot with boot cmd:
> boot dkb0 -file 1/boot/vmlinuz-2.2.14-6.0 -flags "root=/dev/sda1" 

(following redhat 6.2 manual - page chap.8, booting machine post
installation setup - Alpha / SRM post install" )

Bootstrap failure  ... tried many diff combinations.  
Does this mean anything when we are at the >>> prompt
cms.  >>> SHOW | more
boot_dev = dkb0.0.0.0.6.0 
boot_file = (blank)
BOot_osflags = 0
boot_reset = on
bootdef_dev = dkb0.0.0.6.0
booted_dev = (blank)
booted_file = blank
booted_osflags = (blank)

Not sure is this helps... we are still determined
