Someone donate me a new harddisk, please :-) I'm quite sure to remember lilo offers some possibility to select the next os to boot in advance of shutdown. Would that do? Else make lilo read your serial line (what it supports AFAIK) and go wiring to a admin-seat-reachable serial console. /me after short reading of the fine man-page lilo(8) (21.7-5) -R command line This option sets the default command for the boot loader the next time it executes. The boot loader will then erase this line: this is a once-only com mand. It is typically used in reboot scripts, just before calling `shutdown -r'. Sorry this has nothing to do with netboot, but a nice old telnet - or a more fashionable ssh - will to the trick, I hope.
