The packet drivers in the netboot package are taken from the Crynwr packet driver collection, which is the only source of freely copyable drivers. Usually, the manufacturer of the network card provides it's own packet driver (you might take a look at http://support.intel.com for your card), but I'm not allowed to put those into the netboot package. The Crynwr packet driver collection has not been changed for years now. It is considered to be stable. > How is netboot debugged? Is there some sort of debugger? Previously, I have set up some sort of debugging environment using AFD (Advanced Fullscreen Debugger - at least 10 years old) under plain DOS 6.0. However, I'm presently trying to get netboot running under BOCHS, which is a full IA-32 emulator which runs on any Unix operating system. Unfortunately, the network interface code in BOCHS is not very stable yet. BOCHS includes a very primitive command-line-oriented debugger. You can find details about BOCHS at Sourceforge. gero. =========================================================================== This Mail was sent to netboot mailing list by: Gero Kuhlmann <firstname.lastname@example.org> To get help about this list, send a mail with 'help' as the only string in it's body to email@example.com.
