Installing OpenBSD 2.4 over FTP connection

I have a successful linux redhat 6.0 box 486dx2/66 16mb and all, works fine, and I am building another pc for myself, a 486sx/25 with 8mb ram. I have setup ftp on the dx2 so you can access the openbsd cd from an anonymolus connectiopn (made a /home/ftp/cdrom entry & mounted it)...


however when i bootup on the sx/25 with the boot floppy I have made it boots up well but detects my ne2000 compatible card at irq 10, not 9 as I have it set to... this happens even if i change the irq to 7!!!


Linux runs fine with this card, so does windows (i had two dx/33's running win95 perfectly before with these cards... until i discovered linux!!!! yeah baby!!!!!)


help me!!! is there an option somewhat like ifconfig in linux for openbsd!!!!! thankyou1!!

    my machine however freezes after rebooting after a install... after booting the kernel (blue backgrounded writing) it just sits there for a long time after dertermining the hard drive


    I've left it for an hour with no response.. i even loaded it onto my 486DX2/66 and the same thing happens.


    if i boot off the installation disk, choose shell,m mount the hard drive (wd0a) and mkroot (or chroot, i forget) it then everything can be loaded by running portmap, inet, etc...


    however i cant get multiple tty's like i want, and it damb well SHOULD boot!!!


    help!!!

    Hrm, I've never seen boot problems with OBSD, but I believe

    the vttys are configured as in FBSD -- they should be in

    an rc file (/etc/rc.conf or something)


    Sorry if that's not what you meant
