OK, new update. Here's where I am.
Evidently the Fiire tech that told me the VIA files go in /usr/pluto/diskless/install/via was wrong. Got a new tech that says the path is /usr/pluto/install/via. He says that if I put the files boot.tgz kubuntu.tgz and pluto44md.tgz in that folder then boot the MD all should be well. Well it isn't.
I actually did a complete reinstall of 704 completed the wizard adding no AV equipment or extraneous devices, put the files where they say they're supposed to go and booted the MD. Now I'm back to where I was when I started which is the MD boots, gets to Diskless_ExportNFS.sh then reboots. I've left it on for up to 2 hours and it never gets past that point.
Here is my question. Does just putting those files there automatically work? It seems to me that you would have to edit some config file or something to point to the new path as I've created a new folder in the install directory (via). Is anybody out there using the Fiire stations that can maybe help me with this?
Ideally I'd like to have the custom install DVD I was supposed to get with this hardware but Polywell has yet to return my calls or emails (as usual).
Any help would be appreciated.
