Very bad idea - especially as Etherboot is undergoing significant
development just now, with the PXE support (essentially Etherboot's
equivalent of ADLO) being complete. Also a managment change, as Ken Yap
has handed over to Marty Connor and Tim Legge.

Why not just ask? :) It's being discussed on etherboot-developers right

My suggestion is to consider managing FILO as part of the Etherboot tree
- Etherboot already has an IDE disk driver, which predates FILO, IIRC.
The two projects are obvious complements. Also, I'd bet that an
integrated set of net / disk / flash device services would play much
better for integration with other projects like grub2.
