Hello from Gregg C Levine obviously with Jedi Knight Computers
I have been studying Ether Boot, and the behavior of the 3COM family of
cards, the 3C905 family to be exact. I run Slackware Linux here, when I
am not working with Windows, and I am curious as to how you accomplished
that. Basically I have been studying the methods behind how a system can
be booted diskless from the network, and running that distribution.
Naturally I sent off a message to the company regarding that idea, but
they have not gotten back to me, since it was sent to the general
questions alias, I was not suspecting one. Can you supply those methods,
either directly to me, or to the list, and to me. I suspect there are
people out there, who are also curious as to how that was accomplished.
Since this message originally wanted to directly to go to you, I have
then CC: the list, so if you get two copies, as I suspect, just
disregard copy number two.
