OK, well I was doing a bunch of things wrong. But I'm getting closer.
First, CVS is using the linuxbios table, but Eric's etherboot-5.1.0 patch
does not include it. It is in the 5.0.5 patchset.
Doing that, etherboot loads the kernel, and jumps to it.
I've applied Eric's linux-2.4.18-pre7.linuxbios.diff on top of
The mkelfImage-1.18 startup code prints "LinuxBIOS" and then does nothing.
Should I be applying a more recent patch to my kernel? Do I need
My next step is to sprinkle the mkelfImage header with debugging puts()
and the kernel startup with early_printk.
Thanks for your help.
