I know, this may sounds silly, but I'm a little bit confused in how to
install BLADE 0.3. Should I first install BLADE 0.2 and upgrade then
to BLADE 0.3 or is there an other solution. I missed a kind of
INSTALLTION GUIDE for BLADE 0.3 as for BLADE 0.2.

Any help is welcome, besides I use SRM console I didn't find any
boot_ and root_disk for it. Do I have to install MILO for that. I'm
not happy to delete the SRM console, because as far as I know you
didn't catch it via ftp from DEC or do I have missed there some
information.
