Someone asked if it was possible to use a kernel with "loadable module support" turned on with Etherboot. I told them that I had never built one that way, but then I got to wondering. It seems like it might work. If I compiled in all the necessary modules required for the booting process, and provided a /lib/modules directory for later dynamic loading of modules, would this work? I can perform the experiment, but I am wondering if there is some deeper technical reason, like mknbi-linux can't deal with it, or root-over-nfs is incompatible with loadable module support, or something like that. Can anyone provide some illumination? Thanks, Marty --- Name: Martin D. Connor US Mail: Entity Cyber, Inc.; P.O.
