But if someone can make a working > etherboot from 7.03 I'd switch to it. Find attached a DR-DOS v7.02 1.44M floppy boot block. Maybe it will be of use for others too, so I put this to the list. I hope it doesn't hurt. Make your 7.03 boot floppy, load with all the stuff you need, then: dd if=bootsect.702 of=/dev/fd0 bs=512 count=1 and you're done. On the other hand I prefer using the old (ems)netx shell instead of vlm's. It's considerably faster. I made several tests and it showed that on our crap 386 and 486 workstations it gave much faster result loading from the net. So now I use as follows: LSL PNPODI/ET32ODI depending on particular board IPXODI EMSNETX On the side this method requires slightly less memory. All this is only true if you use bindery to Netware (3.11/3.12 eg.). If you insist on using NDS then you're out of luck. As I use mars netware emulator and it can do bindery only, this method was perfect. I hope this helps.
