I'm not the one that usually integrates the bootrom into the bios but here's what I remember. If you add the bootrom as a "PCI Rom", then the bios setting will be able to disable it. If you add it as an "ISA Rom", there is no way to disable it (or boot a floppy again, be careful). We're using Award bios. -Matt =========================================================================== This Mail was sent to netboot mailing list by: "Matt Hortman" <firstname.lastname@example.org> To get help about this list, send a mail with 'help' as the only string in it's body to email@example.com.
