Actually, PXE-20 means that there is a problem with copying the received data into memory. What version of netboot are you using? How much memory is installed in your system? What kind of BIOS are you using? Are you trying to load a ramdisk? If you do, please try to use mknbi-linux without a ramdisk, and let me know if it worked then. The most likely problem is with copying the contents of the ramdisk into memory above 64MB, because netboot uses the BIOS to do the copying, and some BIOS are broken. You might also try to play around with the -l option to mknbi-linux. If the problem still persists please let me know. gero. -- Gero Kuhlmann, gkminix, Germany Tollenbrink 18, 30659 Hannover email@example.com Groote Gracht 33, 26723 Emden firstname.lastname@example.org =========================================================================== This Mail was sent to netboot mailing list by: Gero Kuhlmann <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.
