It seems like it might work. Sure. On my X-terminal I use a kernel that is normal in all ways except for the Root-NFS and BOOTP features, and the NIC driver is compiled in. You can have /lib/modules/... in the root NFS like normal kernels. However if you want a module to be loaded *before* the root NFS is mounted, then you need an initrd. Again this is standard practice. This is one way to allow the NIC driver not to be compiled in. =========================================================================== This Mail was sent to netboot mailing list by: Ken Yap <email@example.com> To get help about this list, send a mail with 'help' as the only string in it's body to firstname.lastname@example.org.
