Not really. But i think Ken Yap, the maintainer of "etherboot"
(, should know a way of doing that.

Etherboot uses "tagged" Images. (Kernel/DOS-Ramdisk/... + a "loader" in
front of it) so IMHO a "loader" which can be tagged in front of memtest86
should do "the trick(tm)". :-)

P.S. I CC'd the netboot(&etherboot) Maillinglist

Real Programmers consider "what you see is what you get" to be just as 
bad a concept in Text Editors as it is in women. No, the Real Programmer
wants a "you asked for it, you got it" text editor -- complicated, 
cryptic, powerful, unforgiving, dangerous.
