Hello, today I've released version 0.9.5 of netboot. There is just one major change: the boot loader of mknbi-linux has been rewritten so that it can get assembled with the GNU assembler GAS instead of as86. This should provide better compatibility since mknbi-linux can now be compiled on any system supported by the GNU development tools (as86 could only be used on i386-based systems as it was not able to cross- assemble). Also, some bugs in mknbi-linux have been fixed which prevented it to work properly with different kernel versions. Please try this new version and let me know how it works for you. I'm especially interested if it works on your system to assemble the target part of mknbi-linux (a file called first.s86). I've tried to make it as portable as possible, but there are so many different installations out there... The next step will be to also convert mknbi-dos, which will also get an additional face lift (larger ramdisk sizes etc.). gero. -- Gero Kuhlmann firstname.lastname@example.org Tollenbrink 18 Groote Gracht 33 Tel.
