I've tried it successfully on my 715/33 using a bootp server.
Just use the cvs-linux tree, install gcc-2.8.1 or whatever with
binutils and GNU make.
For make menuconfig you have to install ncurses too.
Just type make dep boot and copy linux/arch/parisc/boot/Image to
the path specified in bootptab and thats it.


P.S. dd if=Image of=/dev/rdsk/blafasel works too, but the first
     solution is more useful :-)
