The raw image is most appealing to me rather than a filesystem. It's simple
and easy. I don't know much about ELF headers.
My systems can only boot from the hdd, the network is not always in use. I
was under the impression Etherboot was for only for networks. I assume
Etherboot within Linuxbios is the option USE_TFTP. How does the disk/net
multiplex work? I am not familiar with that.
