You could send me the appropriate | command for FreeBSD and I will include it in the next release.. I suggest you grab my port in the the FreeBSD ports collection usr/ports/net/etherboot BTW you should try the latest version that just got commited. You can get it from the FreeBSD ftp server. Then cd into the work/etherboot*/src-32 directory and do a gmake eepro100.fd0 and you should have a bootable floppy. This is how I make them. My port with turn on the options for booting FreeBSD a.out & ELF kernels. Also it build a version of gas that supports the data32 stuff. | >Anyways...
