I missed this reply earlier because my mail server died :-(.
Couple of Q's about etherboot: Does it support the text vga screen/keyboard
without a legacy BIOS? I am not clear on how you specify the boot drive,
maybe -DDEFAULT_BOOTFILE=/dev/hda? Can it boot Linux from a particular
partition (/dev/hda1) or only from the beginning of the disk (I assume
scanning for an elfimage)? My product must boot without a network
connection, and requires vga console/keyboard.
