Re: how to... join Etherboot with my IPX bootrom?

I do not know what options were removed (if any) by the person who
compiled bootroms I am using (and which size I used) - if it is
possible to remove more and still have it working. The fact you
use 16kB ROM, if you do not need to put more code there, does not
mean I will be able to fit it with over 2kB of additional code.

I tested it already - with minimal kernel it can fit in 16kb easily.
