boot cd frustration
I have an ongoing problem with tipping into a machine, hitting enter a
few times to get a prompt, and finding out there's a CD left in there,
and I've just booted off VGA console.
This requires a visit to the machine.
I think the ideal would be to have no default, and force a number to be
If this is not possible, then I think that '3'... boot from serial
console... should be the default, so at least I will be able to reboot
again without visiting the machine. Tedious if it's in ALDC, but a lot
more aggravating if it's at SEB.
Does anyone object to this change to the boot CD? Is there a reason I
haven't thought of for there to even be a default, and secondly, a
default which doesn't work on the majority of our machines?
