    If the boot script does not appear to be functioning properly, first view the serial_eeprom to verify the script has been entered correctly. The serial_eeprom contents can be viewed using the following command (Refer to Logic Loader User Manual for more information).

    Loading consecutive boot scripts into the serial_eeprom through LoLo has been shown to corrupt the boot script. The first script is loaded immediately in front of the second, hence LoLo doesn't know where the first ends and the second begins.

    hd /dev/serial_eeprom

    This can be remedied by 'flushing' the serial_eeprom between entering scripts. The following script will accomplish this:

    echo "......................................................................
    " /dev/serial_eeprom
