You noticed that something changed on DR-DOS 7.03 boot sector and sent me a 720Kb floopy boot sector from DR-DOS 7.02. It worked, but a 720Kb disk is too small to include the Netware (VLM) client softare. I could not build a 1.44 boot from your boot sector, and as a boot floppy was ok for my needs, I stopped there: working with DR-DOS 7.03 and a boot floppy. But if someone can make a working etherboot from 7.03 I'd switch to it. s, Fernando Lozano =========================================================================== This Mail was sent to netboot mailing list by: Fernando Lozano <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.
