Hi, my intension was to boot from network, not to have any linux kernel
code on the disk. So I'm more flexible and Win-NT is the only OS residing
on the disk. We use this configuration for our student computer pools.

Thats why I was trying to use an EPROM. But if the EPROM is installed NT
dies because of conflicts. Now I "emulate" the eprom via the minimal DOS

So long,
