The Linux netboot image file requires 616 kB of free base memory. Are you
using a netboot bootrom? I will try to reproduce this error as soon as
possible, and hopefully find the cause of this problem. Until then you
can comment out the memory check in mknbi-linux/first.s86, around line
207, and recompile mknbi-linux.
