rpc600 sa110 8+0mb 8bitsound
german territory

4 bars appear, then:
-data transfer abort @a068
 no stack for trap handler: illegal instruction pc=8fd4, regs @ f5f8
-6 times undefd. instruction &2214ddc
-right half of icon bar empty
-click on filer icons -> undefd. instruction &2214ddc

I try booting the RPCINST kernel, with different options.
Also with minimal desktop boot (shift).
I don't know if my HD ist setup correctly, the docs
are not existing. But I think this doesn't matter as long
the kernel doesn't boot.
(I also got to the fifth and to the white bar after loading
and killing unixfs.)

This problem has been diagnosed as a result of running an install kernel 
on a 4MB machine. 4MB is not enough to perform an install (3MB used by 
kernel with builtin ramdisk) + video + ... and the install notes will be 
updated to reflect this. 
Originator solve the problem by installing with more memory fitted.
