Second com code work with lsl and odi driver and that is small code but on linux not found builder for this. I have disassembled asm when any specialist can work with this to create this deamon. This deamon will cooperate with mars and provide RPL boot over ipx. > > And about net$dos.sys, can I build it from any bootable floppy, just > using dd? ***** You must use dosgen.exe for create net$dos.sys but it write special data. For new dos-es and bootrom you must after dosgen use rplfix. MARS Provide only boot for old bootroms not RPL by doc. > > > s, Fernando Lozano > =========================================================================== > This Mail was sent to netboot mailing list by: > Fernando Lozano <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.
