> Yes i understandt why old bootrom works but dont why RPL not. RPL is more IBM RPL uses different Ethernet frame - 802.2 - which was implemented in newest kernels, and was not available at the time MARS was written. > I repeat my message! REWrite anybody rpl.com for linux? > I can send disasm code to this worker. I may look at the code, but I cannot promise anything - I do not have documentation of IBM RPL protocol details. Also, I am not sure about some details of Linux. I just attepted to write simple program which should dump 802.2 frames if they are received, and it dumps some frames which look like 802.2 (start: destination ethernet address=broadcast, source ethernet address, length (14 bytes less than received - seems addresses and length are not included), E0 E0 03 (in all packets these three bytes were the same), IPX header and data. When I setup boot on workstation (I have one with 3Com's bootrom, on which I can choose protocol) to use RPL, nothing was received; when I setup it to use NetWare boot, it received SAP query packets. Seems either the RPL boot does not use 802.2, or does not send packets at all, or my program for some reason does not see some kind of 802.2 packets. Any ideas? Here is my program (uuencoded source): begin 644 p.c M(VEN8VQU9&4@/'-T9&EO+F@^"B-I;F-L=61E(#QS>7,O<V]C:V5T+F@^"B-I M;F-L=61E(#QF96%T=7)E<RYH/B`@("`O*B!F;W(@=&AE(&=L:6)C('9E<G-I M;VX@;G5M8F5R("HO"B-I9B!?7T=,24)#7U\@/CT@,B`F)B!?7T=,24)#7TU) M3D]2(#X](#$*(VEN8VQU9&4@/&YE='!A8VME="]P86-K970N:#X*(VEN8VQU M9&4@/&YE="]E=&AE<FYE="YH/B`@("`@+RH@=&AE($PR('!R;W1O8V]L<R`J M+PHC96QS90HC:6YC;'5D92`\87-M+W1Y<&5S+F@^"B-I;F-L=61E(#QL:6YU M>"]I9E]P86-K970N:#X*(VEN8VQU9&4@/&QI;G5X+VEF7V5T:&5R+F@^("`@ M+RH@5&AE($PR('!R;W1O8V]L<R`J+PHC96YD:68*"B-D969I;F4@4T]#2U]4 M"5-/0TM?4D%7("\J+R!33T-+7T1'4D%-("\J*B\*"F]P96Y?<V]C:RAI;G0@ M<')O=&]C;VPI('L*"7)E='5R;B!S;V-K970H4$9?4$%#2T54+"!33T-+7U0L M(&AT;VYS*'!R;W1O8V]L*2D["GT*"FUA:6XH=F]I9"D@>PH):6YT(&DL9F0L M<FP[('5N<VEG;F5D(&-H87(@8G5F6S0P.39=.PH):68H*&9D/6]P96Y?<V]C M:RA%5$A?4%\X,#)?,BDI/3TM,2D@>R!P97)R;W(H(G-O8VLM02(I.R!R971U M<FX@+3$[('T*+RH):68H*&9D/6]P96Y?<V]C:RA%5$A?4%]44E\X,#)?,BDI M/3TM,2D@>R!P97)R;W(H(G-O8VLM0B(I.R!R971U<FX@+3$[('T@*B\*+RH) M:68H*&9D/6]P96Y?<V]C:R@P*2D]/2TQ*2![('!E<G)O<B@B<V]C:RU#(BD[ M(')E='5R;B`M,3L@?0DJ+PH)9G!R:6YT9BAS=&1E<G(L(DQI<W1E;FEN9RXN M+EQN(BD["@EF;W(H.SLI('L*"0ER;#UR96%D*&9D+&)U9BQS:7IE;V8H8G5F M*2D["@D)<')I;G1F*")296-E:79E9"`E9"!B>71E<SHB+')L*3L*"0EF;W(H M:3TP.R!I/')L.R!I*RLI('!R:6YT9B@H:28P>&8I/R(@)3`R>"(Z(EQN)3`R M>"(L8G5F6VE=*3L*"0EP<FEN=&8H(EQN(BD[(&9F;'5S:"AS=&1O=70I.PH) $?0I]"@`` ` end Jerzy Tarasiuk =========================================================================== This Mail was sent to netboot mailing list by: email@example.com To get help about this list, send a mail with 'help' as the only string in it's body to firstname.lastname@example.org.
